A community appeal has been launched ahead of the opening of a pioneering “hospice in the hospital” at Grantham.
St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, within Grantham and District Hospital, is currently being equipped.
Staff need to raise an additional £85,000 to do this.
The new £1.2 million unit will care for more than 160 people from across South West
Lincolnshire each year – saving them and their family and friends a 60-mile round journey to the county’s only inpatient unit at Nettleham Road, Lincoln.
