St Luke’s Hospice in Plymouth is moving its community based services to a newly refurbished office building on the Brooklands Campus in Crownhill.

The two-storey office space will operate alongside the charity’s head office in Turnchapel, Derriford Hospital and the Income Generation department based in Plympton.

Glenn Kelly, from Bruton Knowles Plymouth office which brokered the deal, said that the acquisition of Units 3, 4 and 5 Brooklands will be home to St Luke’s Community Care and Crisis teams, together with their Education and Support services. The property is intended for office use only and will not be used for patient care.

“St Luke’s were fairly specific in their operational requirements for a more contemporary base to support their team,” Kelly continued.

“With changes in legislation charities have to ensure that their place of work is fit for purpose. Brooklands offers a modern office building that is energy efficient and DDA compatible.

“I am sure it will quickly become a landmark for all in the city. We are very proud to support St Luke’s Hospice in Plymouth.”

Steve Statham, the Deputy Chief Executive at St Luke’s Hospice, said that Brooklands “Ticked all the boxes” for their Care at Home services.

He continues: “At St Luke’s we provide care for patients at home not only in Plymouth but across the South Hams, and Dartmoor so it is important for us to have a location that would give our care team of specialist nurses, social workers and occupational therapists easy and quick access to these outlying areas.

“The new facilities will replace the hospice’s current office base at Pearn House. It will save the charity money and be more environmentally friendly, so it’s a win win all round.”

St Luke’s currently has 6,000 sq ft of space at Brooklands, which is located about four miles north of the city centre.
