Return visit to reward Holy Cross Hospital

Dr Llewelyn was pleased to present an award to Holy Cross Hospital in Haslemere for its highly specialised services for patients who are severely disabled.

She presented the award to Charles and Adam, who oversee all kinds of creative and art activities and even take the time to take patients to their hospital outpatient appointments. They gave Dr Llewelyn a wonderful calendar of art works done by the patients under their creative guidance.

Dr Llewelyn said: “It’s clear that both staff and patients value them hugely. Indeed, all the staff go ‘above and beyond’ every day to provide excellent care for their patients, not only clinical care but also a wide range of other activities.”

CEO Ross White hosted the High Sheriff’s visit to the hospital founded in 1917 as a tuberculosis sanitorium by the Congregation of the Daughters of the Cross.

Today, many NHS hospitals refer patients with severe neuro-disabilities and complex needs to Holy Cross, where they receive treatment.

It’s the second time that Dr Llewelyn has had the pleasure of visiting Holy Cross Hospital. She formerly opened its wheelchair-accessible treehouse retreat in August.
