Michael Sobell Hospice Charity (MSHC) is committed to supporting quality palliative and end of life care to patients and families in our local community.

During the last few days, all in patient unit (IPU) patients have had a successful relocation from the unit into side rooms inside the main hospital, on wards 10 & 11. They are now settled, comfortable and receiving high quality care from the nurses, doctors and palliative care team who have moved from the MSH site with them. Patients are able to access the Hospice gardens and there are two day rooms available. As before, MSHC continues to raise funds to support these patients in their new location.

Over the next few months, MSHC in partnership with the East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust will be working together to consider alternative opportunities for a future model of care. We will keep you regularly updated with any further developments.

In the meantime, MSHC will continue to fully fund the running of the Hospice Day Centre and your continued support is needed now more than ever.

We thank you for your loyal and ongoing support.
