A consultation event will be taking place today
Sydenham residents are being asked for their views on a proposed education centre based at a local hospice.
St Christopher’s Hospice is considering plans to re-develop its education facilities at its Lawrie Park Road site.
Today (Thursday) to sessions will be open to locals to look through plans and have their say.
The first event will last from 2-4pm with the second lasting from 6-8pm.
A spokesperson for the hospice said: “We want to build a new, world class education centre, so we can train more people to deliver good quality care.
“This will allow us to empower health and social care professionals, volunteers, carers and the local community to care for people at the end of life outside a hospice setting.
“Ultimately, it will be patients and their families who benefit from the improved standards and accessibility this project will bring about; many more people will be able to receive knowledgeable, compassionate end of life care and support in the right place for them.”
