Longstone Hospital Service of Thanksgiving
30/04/2014A service of thanksgiving for Longstone Hospital, organised by the Hospital Chaplaincy Team and the Southern Health and Social Care Trust, is planned for Sunday 18 May 2014.
The service will provide an opportunity to reflect on the commitment and dedication of staff past and present who have provided care to patients and their relatives over the past 39 years.
Southern Trust Chair Roberta Brownlee said: “I am delighted to be part of this historic event and I would like to thank all staff past and present who have provided such outstanding service to the local community from 1975 to 2014. A new inpatient Learning Disability Ward will open in Craigavon Area Hospital in June and it is a fitting tribute to the staff that we mark the life of Longstone Hospital with a service of thanksgiving.”
As part of the celebrations, an exhibition showing life at Longstone is planned for Thursday 15 May and Friday 16 May. For more information on the service and the exhibition, visit www.southerntrust.hscni.net/LongstoneService or telephone 028 3861 2579.
