What Is It?
Almost everyone living in Bungay will have heard of All Hallows Hospital. Many people associate it as "a place to go when you are coming to the end of your life" or "where we used to have our babies". But All Hallows is so much more than that. Not just a hospital but a Healthcare Trust providing a seamless service of integrated health and social care for the local population and constantly evolve and develop existing services and introduce new ones to help improve the health and well-being of people living in our local community.
The work at All Hallows Healthcare Trust provides a valuable service for the young and old who have rehabilitation and long-term needs and is a far cry away from being "a place to die" - in fact the opposite is true - it is a place full of life with help how to live that life.

PHYSIOTHERAPY EXERCISE CLASSES
The department provides a comprehensive range of diagnostic and rehabilitative physiotherapy to outpatients and inpatients and the Nursing Home. The team addresses the physical, psychological, emotional and social well-being of patients.
Through health promotion, preventive healthcare, treatment, and rehabilitation we help people and their families and carers to aid the individual to reach their full potential following injury, illness or surgery.
There is also the Hospital and Nursing Home which include rehabilitation, respite and end of life care and a Specialist Care Home for those suffering from neurological trauma.
How is it funded?
All Hallows Healthcare Trust relies heavily on the generosity of local people. Donations and legacies help ensure that we are able to continue our vital work now and in the future. Anyone can get involved and there are many ways you can support us.
The Association of Friends of All Hallows Hospital Supporting All Hallows Healthcare Trust was formed to raise funds and provide donations to the Trust to enhance the fabric of the building and for equipment to enhance the patient's stay.
Over 40 years the Friends have raised significant funds - well over £1million and are still raising money. The largest legacy was used to build the Day Treatment and Therapy Centre.
The Friends of All Hallows Hospital hold events during the year and are always looking for new members not only by donating money but also donating time to help prepare for the events.
What do the Friends do?
The Friends hold at least 4 major events each year: the Garden Party in the Hospital grounds, a garden party in the Nursing Home grounds, a musical event and a Christmas Bazaar. This year, 2016, there were two concerts in the beautiful chapel at All Hallows Convent.
Other events organised by the Friends could be coffee mornings, brunches, lunches, suppers, antique appraisals, fashion shows, quiz nights, garden question times, concerts, stalls at the Bungay street fairs and new ideas are always welcome.
