Burrswood independent Christian Hospital, the only one of its type in the country, has been given a top award for its services. It has been awarded the QUDOS AWRD for Qality in Delivering excellent services in MS.

Jennie Turnbull, who led the bid for the award, said "It is an enormous honour for Burrswood to be recognised in this way".

Burrswood, which is in Groombridge, focuses on providing medical and nursing skills to deliver dedicated Whole Person care, treating each patient as a special person with compassion, dignity and respect. Their teams of Counsellors, Chaplains and Physiotherapists, together with other supporting staff, aim to provide the best possible patient experience for both Hospital patients and for users of their Out-Patient clinics and services.

They are continuing to develop their services and enhance their facilities so that more people can benefit from their unique care and support in their beautiful and peaceful surroundings. The Hospital receives no direct Government funding and therefore depend on the kindness and generosity of those who support and use their Charity. Their Christian ethos welcomes people of all faiths and none, as they wish to help as many people as possible.
