Specialist Palliative Care
We provide quality specialist palliative and end of life care for the people, relatives and carers of our local community. We work closely with other health care professionals to achieve this.
We understand that for many people the thought of coming to the Hospice can be daunting and may make your and your family anxious and this is a particularly difficult period in people’s lives.
You may have lots of questions, uncertainty and fear about the days ahead. Our role is to answer those questions wherever possible and to provide support and reassurance to the whole family. The days ahead may be difficult, but you will be safe in our care.
Our specialist team of medical and nursing staff deliver end of life care to our patients and support their families, carers and friends. The services offered by the Hospice are varied across a number of disciplines and reflect the diverse nature of our care and support. For example, during the past year the Hospice has provided almost 300 In-patient stays and had over 1,000 Day Therapy attendances. There were also over 800 medical consultations in Hospice Out-Patients. The Hospice offers social, psychological and spiritual support from our social workers and spiritual care team. Together with the support offered by our bereavement team, almost 1,000 families benefited from these services.
