We are very pleased to report that the North West Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has confirmed their plans to continue to commission our services after the expiry of our current contract. The new contract will extend to March 2018, providing us with the certainty we require to take our long term strategy forward.

In addition to the contract extension the CCG has also recognised our plans for the relocation of all Hospice beds to our new Hospice in Goldsworth Park and has given its support to our creation of a community hub at the Sam Beare Hospice in Weybridge.

The lease for the Sam Beare Hospice has been uncertain for some time and after receiving support from the CCG we can confirm that NHS Property Services have said they will grant us a new 10 year lease for the facility. This will be subject to the agreement of rental and service charge costs which are currently being discussed. We need certainty to enable us to implement our future plans, so although we have made significant steps forward, negotiations will continue to ensure we can constantly improve the care and support we are able to provide to all those diagnosed with life-limiting illnesses in our community.
