Delivery set for charity-funded Norfolk hospice
Morgan Sindall Construction has been selected by the Norfolk charity Priscilla Bacon, to deliver its new charity-funded state-of-the-art hospice, which will be built on an eight-acre site adjacent to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
The site was donated by Robert and Charlotte Carter to mark the centenary of local contractor R G Carter.
The new facility will have the capacity for 24 inpatient beds. It will offer improved day care facilities, with a wellness centre and gym, as well as the space to host a community hub to provide ‘virtual ward’ care for people being cared for in their homes. The new hospice will also be a platform for education and research into palliative and end-of-life care.
Robert Carter, Chairman of both Priscilla Bacon Hospice Charity and R G Carter, said: “I wanted to ensure that my gift of land was an unconditional donation to the Charity, therefore my firm did not compete for the building contract. We are therefore delighted that Morgan Sindall Construction, another regional construction company, won this prestigious contract.”
