St Christopher’s welcomes Minister’s visit

St Christopher's was delighted to welcome Ben Gummer MP, Under Secretary of State for Care Quality, to the hospice on Wednesday 30 September 2015

St Christopher’s was delighted to show Ben Gummer MP around the hospice on Wednesday 30 September 2015.  Ben is the Under Secretary of State for Care Quality at the Department of Health and visited us on a private, fact-finding mission.  He met with representatives from St Christopher’s management team, visited our four wards where he talked with patients, was introduced to patients and volunteers in the Anniversary Centre and was also shown the benefits of our Rehabilitation gym.

We were delighted that Ben and his team were able to spend the morning getting to know the hospice and our work in the community, and he said that he found the visit very interesting and informative.
