Queen receives teddy bears at hospice opening
The Queen yesterday officially opened a new £3.4 million facility for The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House.
Located in the village of Hillington, the hospice is a just over three miles from Sandringham Estate.
Dressed in a teal Peter Enrione collared dress and coat, The Queen met Jack Plummer from King’s Lynn, his mother Amee Walton died in 2013 from a brain tumour at the young age of 29.
A DURHAM hospice has become the first in the country to appoint a special mental health nurse to address the growing numbers of people with dementia.
Sharron Tolman has joined the staff at St Cuthbert’s Hospice in Durham City.
The North East’s first Admiral Nurse is employed by the hospice but will get clinical supervision through the Admiral Nurse organisation, which is supported by Dementia UK.
Real people – whose time with their family is often postponed.
WHILE most of us are watching the Queen’s Speech, the Doctor Who Christmas special or tucking into our turkey but for some, it is a normal working day.
We all take it for granted that help is available for us 24 hours a days seven days a week, even on December 25.
But behind the uniform of these dedicated people, there are real people – whose time with their family is often postponed.
