New future for All Hallows Hospital
An adult neurorehabilitation service is to begin again at All Hallows Hospital in Ditchingham, near Bungay.
The Oakleaf Group has been granted a lease to use the hospital, and it’s planning to carry out an extensive programme of refurbishment to provide 29 specialist placements, which includes 4 transitional flats.
The new service will be up and running by summer 2020 and will care for and support people from the surrounding areas. Placements will be funded by people on NHS placements, social care funded and private.
All Hallows Hospital closed in May 2019 with all patients quickly settled into new care premises. Since then considerable efforts were made by the Trust, health and social care commissioners and the Community of All Hallows to secure new providers for the Trust’s services and facilities.
The Oakleaf Group has its headquarters in Northamptonshire. It has been delivering neurorehabilitation to men for over 15 years, during which time the service has grown significantly to become one of the leading providers of neurorehabilitation. Each of its facilities are supported by highly skilled and experienced multi-disciplinary team professionals, providing a flexible and seamless rehabilitation pathway for those with acquired and traumatic brain injuries and progressive neurological conditions.
Sr. Sheila, the Community Co-Leader said: “we originally established the Healthcare Trust in 2009 to take over the running of the Community’s Hospital, Day Care Centre and Nursing Home. The unexpected closure of the Trust meant that the Trust’s premises would revert to us and so we have been actively involved in ensuring that the Trust’s services could continue”.
“The Trust’s former Nursing Home has already been let by the Community to NorseCare Ltd and the Day Care services to Empanda Care and Support CIC. We are delighted that, with the grant of a lease to Oakleaf, the future of the hospital has also now been secured”.
