Here’s to celebrating 30 years of hospice care!
Want to see how the Hospice has changed over the last 30 years thanks to the generous people of North Derbyshire?
You are invited to an interactive exhibition displaying 30 years of hospice care at Chesterfield Market Hall Assembly Rooms from Monday 15th October to Saturday 20th October.
Our exhibition will be open from 9am – 5pm daily. So, please come in to see how your local hospice has grown over the years and contribute your own memories of Ashgate Hospicecare.
“It’s amazing to think that it has been 30 years since Ashgate Hospicecare opened! The appeal at that time for three quarters of a million pounds started a couple of years earlier and enabled the first patients to be admitted in October 1988. on a personal basis I acted as Medical Director for the first few years, but never did I think I might be asked to write a few words 30 years on, or even be around to do so!”
– Dr Richard Atkinson, Vice President of Ashgate Hospicecare and founding doctor.
