Welcome to Holbeach Hospital: Celebrating 30 years of being a truly dedicated community service
A warm welcome awaits you at Holbeach and East Elloe Hospital care home. Set near the rural market town of Holbeach, surrounded by mature gardens and open fields, our hospital provides a range of care options to suit your needs.
Our Hospital Trust was formed in 1988 after the South Lincolnshire Health Authority announced their intention to close Holbeach Hospital. Rather than fight the closure, local community leaders chose to work with the health authority to find a way for the facility to remain open. Substantial funds were raised by local people and Holbeach and East Elloe Hospital Trust was formed. The Trust now provides beds for use by local GPs, nursing home beds, as well as re-ablement beds. Not only did the people of Holbeach and the surrounding villages save their hospital, they provided a resource which continues to grow and meet the needs of the community it serves.
The Hospital is a registered charity (701458) and still receives tremendous support from the local community today. The League of Friends work tirelessly to raise funds via their shop in Holbeach and through their committee of dedicated fundraisers. The support of the local community continues to be invaluable and is greatly appreciated. Recently their fundraising has enabled us to buy a new minibus which is used to take residents out on day trips as well as by our Activities Team.
In 2020 the Trust enters its 31st year in operation. Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years, your continued support is really appreciated.
We believe friends and relatives should be able to visit residents at any time during the day so we do not have restrictive visiting times. We only ask that visitors do not arrive too early in the morning or too late in the evening.
As you may be aware, from 13th May 2020 the Prime Minister has eased some of the lockdown measures across England. Unfortunately this relaxation of rules cannot apply to our residents, many of whom are vulnerable and all must be protected against the spread of the virus. We appreciate that this is an extremely difficult time for residents and families not to be able to see each other face to face and so have introduced a number of measures to enable you to keep in touch with your loved one, including telephone calls, reading the letters and emails you send, whatsapp and skype calls and on special occasions such a birthdays, drive through greetings and seeing each other through a shut window. Unfortunately these visits do need to be kept quite brief.
We hope that you understand the compromises we need to make. If you have any questions, please do not hesistate to speak to the Manager, Deputy Manager or Nurse in Charge. Visiting arrangements will be reviewed for those visiting their loved one in their final days.
We have ample free parking at the front and rear of the building.
