Maria Miller MP visited St Michael’s Hospice and met with the Chair of Trustees, Andrew Finney and CEO David Monkman.
Maria caught up with recent developments and heard about the success of the Six Steps Programme which teaches Residential Homes’ Staff about end of life care.
Maria discussed the success of the Hospice at Home Programme and the Hospice’s ability to deliver domiciliary care.
Maria commented; “St Michael’s Hospice in embedded in our community here in Basingstoke and is a wonderful example of how volunteers in Basingstoke serve the community.
I have so enjoyed seeing how the gardens have developed because of the hard work of volunteers. St Michael’s provides a vital service in supporting both patients and their families during an incredibly difficult time. We are so very fortunate to have such a strong hospice here in Basingstoke- it is part of the fabric of our town.”
