Walnuttree Hospital

12 July 2010 No Comment



With the expected closure of in-patient beds at Walnuttree Hospital we come to the end of another phase in the long and colourful history of the site.  In future, alternative beds will be bought in the community, offering the service as close to the patient as possible.

Originally built as a workhouse for the poor, the present buildings have served as a hospital since the foundation of the National Health in 1948.

On Sunday 18th July 2010 there will be a Service of Thanksgiving at St Gregory’s Church, starting at 3pm.  The address will be given by the Rt Revd Clive Young, Bishop of Dunwich.  Everyone is most warmly invited to attend.

This will be an opportunity for the staff, patients and people of Sudbury to look back and give thanks for all that has been achieved at Walnuttree Hospital over many years and, equally importantly, to look forward to the future as we begin a new phase of healthcare.

For any further information on the Service please contact the Revd Canon David Crawley, Chaplaincy & Pastoral Care Services Manager, 01284 713486.
