Suffolk MP Jo Churchill hailed the “compassion and dedication” of children’s hospice staff after being given a guided tour of The Treehouse.
Jo Churchill, who represents Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket and Needham Market, was shown around the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) base in Ipswich by Chief Executive Phil Gormley and Service Manager Nathan Muskett.
She saw the sensory room and hydrotherapy room and described her tour as “truly inspiring”.
“It was a privilege to visit The Treehouse, to see and hear about the incredible work EACH does providing palliative care to children with life-limiting conditions, and the support they give families,” said Mrs Churchill.
“The compassion and dedication shown by the staff is truly inspiring and their provision of care when it’s needed most is an essential source of comfort and support for families facing the most challenging times.
“I had the opportunity to explore the impressive range of facilities, including a multi-sensory studio, hydrotherapy pool, music room, play areas, and specialised outdoor equipment, offering a safe and fun environment for children, and a space for families to find moments of rest and relaxation.
“The care and amenities are testament to the dedication and commitment of the staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to create a welcoming and hospitable environment for all.”
Mrs Churchill visited The Treehouse on Friday, 10th February.
