Hospice Patients to Be Shifted Ahead Due To Renovations

The Marie Curie Hospice would soon be going under refurbishment costing £2.7 million. It would nearly take six months after which the Hospice would don a new look. The patients at the hospice would be moved ahead of the start of the renovation to a specially adapted ward at the Western General.

Also, the inpatients currently in Fairmilehead would be accommodated on the hospital’s ward 15 from May 10. The day services and the complimentary therapies would be shifted to Ward 12. These wards are currently empty as they are basically used as an extra capacity ward during the winters.

The refurbishment of the hospice would add a lot of new features to it, like an introduction of direct access from patient rooms to the balconies and the garden. There would also be en-suite bathrooms that would be added and the room space would also be increased.

The Assistant Director of hospices for Marie Curie, Margaret White said, “We’re very grateful to NHS Lothian for accommodating us and would like to reassure all of our patients and their families that we’ll continue to run the same high-quality services and offer the same facilities, during the next six months”. With this refurbishment, we would increase the level of quality services that we provide to our patients.
