RIBA Worcestershire Awards 2017
St David’s Hospice Care currently has its hospice headquarters and day hospice/outreach chemotherapy unit in a purpose build day hospice at Blackett Avenue, Newport. The construction of the build took place during 2011/12.
The construction of the new 15 bed state of the art in-patient Unit has been physically linked to the current day hospice to share staff and facilities across the two buildings, this has created a centre of excellence for palliative and cancer care in a harmonious and beautifully landscaped environment.
“I feel privileged and humbled to be able to work in such an amazing place. The new hospice is like heaven on Earth.
(St David’s Staff Nurse)
“I cannot express how wonderful the new hospice is. My Dad is so content here, his pain is being controlled and the staff are so kind. He loves the view from his room, especially as the sun is going down, thank you so much”
