Heather Cook, Matron

This Hospice Care Week, as we take the time to reflect on the patients and families we have supported over the past year at Cransley Hospice, we also wanted to take the opportunity to give our heartfelt thanks to YOU, our incredible supporters.

Without your ongoing commitment to supporting Cransley Hospice Trust, we would not be where we are today, providing essential and outstanding end of life care and support to patients and their families in our community.

For more than 18 months now, the world has been dealing with the devastating effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and the impact has been felt throughout our whole team. When patients are referred to our services, they are at their most vulnerable and it has been incredibly challenging for our team to provide our usual compassionate care with so many barriers in place.

I’m incredibly proud of our team who have shown such strength during this unprecedented time. They’ve had to deliver heart breaking news without being able to give a comforting hug, they’ve learnt to show empathy to a patient’s struggles while wearing a face mask and continued to deliver compassion and sensitivity whilst working within the unnatural constraints and restrictions that are so important to ensure everyone’s safety. We thrive on human connection to provide comfort during such difficult times and we have had to adapt to new ways of delivering our outstanding care and support.

On behalf of myself – and the whole clinical team at Cransley Hospice, I wanted to thank everyone who has visited the hospice during this time for their patience, understanding and willingness to work with us as we care for your loved ones. 

Thanks to your support, we have still enabled patients to receive specialist care and support at a place of their choosing, for pressure to be relieved from families and for precious memories to continue being made.

I would also like to recognise the phenomenal charitable support that you continue to give to Cransley Hospice Trust. Whether you’ve fundraised, signed up to an event, committed to monthly donations or played our lottery, please know how grateful we are and how much of a difference your donations make to the care we are able to provide.

Now, more than ever, we are incredibly grateful for your support.  So again, THANK YOU.

With warmest wishes,

Matron, Cransley Hospice
