The History of Burrell House - the home of Winchester Hospice
With your support to raise the funds, Burrell House will be renovated to become Winchester Hospice.
Winchester Hospice will be the home of the palliative care team, providing compassionate and specialist care for up to 10 inpatients as well as patients in hospital and in their own homes.
Burrell House is located on the grounds of the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester and has an important legacy in the city. Augusta Burrell was a generous benefactor, whose donations in the early 1900’s meant a great deal of work could be done, including an extension of the operating theatre.
Nurses lived on the top floor of Burrell House throughout the First World War, and the Preliminary Training School was located on the ground floor. Since then, Burrell House has been used as accommodation for many healthcare professionals over the years.
Now, the legacy of Augusta Burrell and Burrell House will continue as the central location for specialist and end of life care for residents in and around Winchester.
We need nearly £3 million to renovate Burrell House and turn it into a hospice. Thanks to a generous legacy donation, part of the money is already in place but we need your help to convert this building into its former glory as a landmark in our community.
