What do our patients and their loved ones say about our care?

“They looked after Grandad with reflexology, medicine, ice cream and lots of love.”

Matilda Morris-Barnes
“Despite everything I’m going through, I consider myself very lucky to be here.”

Patient Ruth Hislop
“The hospice is a phenomenal place with incredible staff.”

Ashley English
“Despite all his fears, concerns and negative expectations, Peter was happy here and grateful to be here, thanks to the doctors and nurses. That was an amazing gift to us.”

Lyndsey Morris-Barnes
“Everyone seemed to understand what we were going through.”

Patient Ruth Hislop
"To know that you don’t have to do this on your own is so very special.”
“I wonder if the nurses, doctors and volunteers have any real idea of the depth of impact they had on us, and I’m sure many families before us.”

Lyndsey Morris-Barnes
“They do so much when I am struggling. They’re always there for me in the darker moments, usually at night when I can’t sleep or the pain is bad. It’s thanks to them that I’m still here.”

Patient Ruth Hislop
“The care they provide at the hospice is just amazing but it’s the way that care is delivered that is so very special and humbling - always with real compassion, with empathy and with what I can only describe as real love."
