LATEST UPDATE - Friday 28th September 2018
We were pleased to meet this week with Sir Michael Sobell's granddaughter Gaie Scouller - one of the trustees of The Sobell Foundation
The Foundation is a grant-making trust established by Sir Michael in 1977 for general charitable purposes, which included the original set-up costs of the hospice.
We updated the Foundation about the current challenges facing end-of-life and palliative care services in the north of Hillingdon.
We talked about our aim to protect inpatient and day services in a rebuilt, renovated or relocated hospice - including standing ready to raise capital funds for an achievable plan.
And we explained the need for NHS leaders to put concrete proposals for hospice care on the table by the end of 2018.
We will always be grateful for the Foundations commitment to hospice care in our community - and will be keeping its trustees fully informed about our next steps.
