Redbridge mayor praises ‘love and care’ of staff during hospice visit
The Mayor of Redbridge was left surprised at the positive atmosphere after his visit to a hospice, and he praised the “love and care” of staff
Cllr Muhammed Javed made his first visit to Saint Francis Hospice last week, to find out more about the end-of-life services available to the people of Redbridge.
Cllr Javed, who was hosted by CEO Pam Court, met staff and patients as he toured the hospice in Broxhill Road, Havering-Atte-Bower, and was surprised at the positive atmosphere in both the day hospice and inpatient unit.
He said: “I’m delighted to have met staff and patients, and I’m very pleased to see the high standard of service offered to patients at different stages of their illness, and to their families.
“You are not reminded of death at Saint Francis Hospice, but are very aware of the love and care shown by staff.”
