Ashgate Hospicecare: £103,025 Grant

Ashgate Hospicecare is thrilled to receive a generous grant from the Westfield Health Charitable Trust.

The money will be used to create a beautiful garden room and dementia friendly courtyard for patients, families and visitors, to ensure there is a space where families can make positive memories and remember their lives together.

Graham Moore, Chairman of the Westfield Health Charitable Trust, said: “It is a pleasure to be funding the improvements on the Inpatient Unit at Ashgate Hospicecare.

Karen Walker, Ward Manager of the Inpatient Unit at Ashgate Hospicecare, said: “We are really proud of our ‘Outstanding’ rating from the Care Quality Commission for our care.

The wonderful grant from Westfield Health means that we will have an outstanding area to match that care.”

In 2015, Ashgate Hospicecare achieved an overall rating of ‘Outstanding’ from the Care Quality Commission. The report showed the Hospice provides high quality, safe and innovative care and that patients, their relatives and carers were highly complimentary and satisfied with the care given, which they often described as excellent, exceptional or outstanding.
