The boss of Welwyn Garden City’s Isabel Hospice has denied that managers plan a permanent move out of its home town.

A man describing himself as a “former supporter” told the Welwyn Hatfield Times that bosses were looking for another permanent home for the hospice because they were unable to expand on its current site just off Howlands.

The in-patient unit has been temporarily relocated to a nursing home in Hatfield while building proceeds on the adjacent former QEII Hospital site, but interim chief executive Helen Glenister said there were no plans for a permanent move.

She told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “We hope to be back in Howlands. We just have plans to go back where we were.”
