I couldn't be prouder of our teams who have worked so hard to meet the challenges of the Coronavirus. Together they have made sure that our patients and their loved ones get the care and support they need throughout the lockdown period. Not only have they adapted their skillset, but they have also done it with a smile and worked tirelessly to maintain our services. Emma Dixon, Director of Clinical Services
Over this period, we’ve not only seen a rise in the need for our services, but we’ve also seen a significant financial impact too. In March we launched our Covid Impact Appeal, and we are so grateful to our amazing family of supporters who gave financially to support the hospice.
It takes a community to keep our community going. Visit www.sah.org.uk/covid-impact-appeal to help ensure that we can continue providing lifechanging care for the people who need us today.
