Members of the Senedd visit St Kentigern Hospice to praise the “first-class” support it provides

Three Members of the Senedd visited St Kentigern Hospice in April to discuss the vital impact of hospice care throughout North Wales.

Our Chief Executive, Jane McGrath, and Chair, Steve Thomas, welcomed Clwyd West MS and Shadow Minister for North Wales Darren Millar, MS Sam Rowlands and Vale of Clwyd MS Gareth Davies who made their latest visit to the hospice to discuss funding for hospice care and fundraising initiatives. The three members of the Senedd wished to thank and praise all staff and volunteers at St Kentigern Hospice for all they do to provide “first-class” support for patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families across North Wales.

Commenting after the visit, Darren said:

“Since being founded in 1995, St Kentigern Hospice has been instrumental in providing specialist palliative care services to patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families across their catchment area of Denbighshire, West Flintshire and East Conwy.

“The Hospice has a wide range of state-of-the-art facilities and services, including inpatient care, day-care, outpatient clinic, community support, bereavement support, and complementary therapies.

“The clinical team work tirelessly to provide individualised care and support, ensuring that patients receive the best possible care that is tailored to their needs.

“We are extremely fortunate to have such a first-rate facility on our doorstep, providing assurances that should we, or a family member, require it, the best possible care is available locally.

“It was great to catch-up with the fantastic team and to have the opportunity to thank them once again for the incredible work they are doing.”

Sam said:

“Given that St Kentigern Hospice is a registered charity and is mostly reliant on donations and contributions from the community, the service they are providing is particularly commendable.

“The hospice hosts a range of fundraising events and activities throughout the year, such as sponsored runs, coffee mornings, and fashion shows, and I encourage people to support these where they can,  after all, none of us know when we, or a loved one, may require the excellent services they provide.  

“I thank the team for welcoming us once again and thank them for all they are doing.”

Gareth said:

“It’s always good to catch up with St Kentigern Hospice in St Asaph.

“The amazing work they do in providing first class end-of-life care in the local area is second to none and they will always have my support.”
