As you may be aware, St Luke’s launched a 25th anniversary appeal in 2013 to help raise funds for a second site at Wheelock Heath. Along with a capital grant from the Department of Health, we are pleased to say that our new site (named as Winterley Grange) is now ready for staff to start moving in. Winterley Grange will host the wider education teams for both end of life and dementia care.
As of the end of June, the St Luke’s Community Outreach Service (that was being delivered from Church Lawton Memorial Hall), will be delivered in a different format.
Joyce Key will be leading a new separate community based service known as the Keystone Palliative Support Centre. Their services will run from Church Lawton Memorial Hall on Mondays. Full details of their services can be found from their website.
For St Luke’s, from the autumn of 2014 complementary therapies and some support services will start to be delivered from our site at Winterley Grange (as well as being delivered from our site in Winsford). Kath Knight will continue to develop the community befriending service.
Siobhan Horton, Director of Clinical Services said “St Luke’s Winterley Grange site would never have been built without the vision of Joyce Key, as well as the local doctors and nurses. Her passion and dedication towards patient care and support services is second to none.”
Over the years Joyce has gained support from Siobhan at St Luke’s to help develop the outreach service for Alsager and district, the culmination of which is Winterley Grange and Keystone, two separate but aligned services.
We look forward to helping Keystone in any way that we can.
