St Elizabeth Hospice

Dan paid a visit to St Elizabeth Hospice.Here he was able to see the new extension which is almost ready to open to  patients. Director of Patient Services Verity Jolly showed Dan around the new build and then introduced him to patients and staff.

Dan is a great supporter of St Elizabeth Hospice, which plays a vital role in caring for people with progressive illnesses in Ipswich and Suffolk. The single biggest challenge facing our health service in Suffolk is meeting the human and financial cost of better

All the staff and volunteers at the hospice work tirelessly to look after residents towards the end of their lives.
