HM The Queen

Elizabeth II (1926 - 2022)

We at Hospiscare are deeply saddened at the news of the death of Her Majesty the Queen. Our thoughts are with her family at this time.

While our hearts are heavy at Her Majesty’s passing, they are also filled with immense gratitude for her long and unwavering service to our nation and the Commonwealth.

During this period of national mourning, our priority will remain the vital care and support of our patients and their loved ones.

Over the next hours and days we will be reviewing guidance from the government and local councils. Should this result in any changes to our planned or everyday activities, we will provide updates below this message.

We recognise this may be a time of significant grief. For help and advice on understanding and coping with grief, including secondary grief, please see the following resources:

Notification of any changes to planned activities will be posted here –
