HospiceCare North Northumberland: Helping with their Big Move

17th May 2019

Our Alnwick team have donated vital communication technology to HospiceCare North Northumberland as they move to their new home at Greensfield Court in Alnwick.

After 20 years in their Alnwick building, HospiceCare are moving to Greensfield Court on the Greensfield Industrial Estate; a building that will allow them to further grow and develop their dementia and hospice at home services across North Northumberland. The bigger site required significantly more technology and we were delighted to be able to help with a donation of eight monitors, giving the team the communication technology they require to continue the care and support they offer to people living with life-limiting illnesses.

Craig Ross, a Partner and Planning Consultant at George F. White, said: “Community is a huge focus for us here at George F. White. When we heard that HospiceCare North Northumberland needed a bit of a help moving into their new premises, we were determined to assist in any way that we could as part of our GFW Community programme. We’re in the process of refurbishing our Alnwick office, therefore were pleased to know that any spare equipment could not only be of use, but to ensure that such a meaningful charity could continue to growth their vital resources across North Northumberland.”

HospiceCare North Northumberland has now opened their new Wellbeing Centre.

Craig continued: “The new Wellbeing Centre is fantastic news for town. HospiceCare are relied upon for many families in North Northumberland; their new centre will be the first of its kind in over 30 miles, meaning that users can access the services they need in their local community.”

Next year see’s the charities 25th anniversary and the move signifies how far their services have grown and developed from a small borrowed premises in Shilbottle in the late 90’s.

HospiceCare North Northumberland’s CEO, Paul Jones-King added: “We are hugely grateful to the team at George F. White for their very kind donation of eight preloved computers monitors which now allows our nurses, for the first time, to have a computer each enabling them to access our new electronic care planning system, which will revolutionise the way we plan our care delivery.”
