All Hallows Healthcare Trust
All Hallows Healthcare Trust is an expanding charitable organisation, based in Ditchingham on the Norfolk and Suffolk border, which offers a comprehensive range of quality health and social care services.
These services include a Community Hospital, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy, a Long Term Care Unit for people with neurological, physical and sensory disabilities, a Nursing Home, Adult Day Centre and a range of Homecare Services including Befriending and Meals on Wheels.
In May 2007 it was announced that the Sisters from the Community of All Hallows were to promote an independent charity. A registered charity and a company limited by guarantee was then formed: All Hallows Healthcare Trust.
Our mission is to deliver high quality and compassionate Healthcare using skilled and dedicated staff. Our distinctive philosophy of care, is based on Christian values, and is reflected in our welcoming environment, in our understanding of patients’ needs and beliefs and in our respect for the dignity of each individual.
What We Provide:
The Trust provides a unique complex of local Healthcare services over four key areas, managed by Chief Executive Mr Howard Green.
All Hallows Hospital in Ditchingham on the South Norfolk border – with four acres of traditional country garden set in the beautiful Waveney Valley, the Hospital is an ideal location for giving the peace and professional care so important in illness. It provides rehabilitation, palliative and respite care and provides specialist care for people with a neurological, physical and/or sensory disabilities. It has free parking facilities and is within walking distance of main bus route.
All Hallows Nursing Home in Bungay, Suffolk cares for long term residents who are physically dependent; many need full assistance with most activities of daily living. It also provides sort term convalescent care and a range of Daycare services for people living in their own homes. It accepts residents from the private sector, Social Services and the National Health Service.
All Hallows Home Care specialises in Needs Based Care for people living at home. The team aim to ensure that each client receives the highest standard of care, and to assist them to live as independently as possible, whilst recognising personal freedom of choice and recognise and promote dignity, self-respect, independence and privacy.
All Hallows Daycare Centre, situated in the grounds behinds the Hospital, is open 6 days a week – Tuesday to Sunday (Closed Saturdays) and provides adult daycare from 9.30am to 3.30pm for up to 24 people a day.

Continuing Healthcare in the Community
Although All Hallows Hospital and All Hallows Nursing Home has contractual arrangements with surrounding healthcare providers for inpatient beds, we are independent. The money we receive from these contracts pays for the care we provide but not for the equipment needed such as beds, mattresses and specialist slings.
All Hallows Healthcare Trust is a registered charity and relies heavily on the generosity of local people. Donations and legacies help ensure that it is able to continue its vital work. To find out more, please visit our website fundraising and events pages.
Volunteers have always been a very important part of All Hallows. They help to provide the highest standard of support for our patients, residents and clients. Another way you can help is to provide us with in-house entertainment, such as a musical performance, singing, games, animal visits, art & crafts, PAT Dogs, and more!
We also support students aged 14 years and over seeking work experience through their school or college and offer voluntary placements for students taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
For further information on volunteering, please visit our website.
