I have been a patient at Sobell House on two occasions during the last four months after fighting bladder cancer for more than two years. I was most recently admitted to the hospice in March and this stay is likely to be my last. I cannot express enough how grateful I am for the genuinely personal care I have received from every single member of staff in the hospice from housekeeping, kitchen and administrative staff, to the volunteers, the chaplains, the nurses and the doctors. The care which I have received has been without compare, and the best that I could have asked for. Everything has been done to make my time here as pain-free, comfortable and dignified as possible and I should like to commend Sobell House most highly, a sentiment which I have expressed in writing to my local MP and to the Department of Health.
I have also found the surroundings of the hospice to be a source of calm and comfort, particularly the beautiful light-filled chapel and the lovingly tended gardens which have bloomed into a vision of colour this spring. It has been a soothing diversion to be able to sit in the courtyard gardens with my family on these warmer days, and we have also been fortunate to make life-long friends with a pair of ducks who have visited the gardens on numerous occasions. Like everyone at Sobell House, they have brought light and joy.

We are most grateful to the people who work at and support Sobell House. They are united in a common purpose to maintain the dignity and the wellbeing of patients, in a very peaceful and supportive environment. We feel the most important factor is that by enabling families to have so much time together, everyone is helped to manage an immensely difficult experience. We thank you all, and all of Sobell House’s supporters and wider community, in which we now count ourselves.
