The services we provide are:
- In-patient Services
Our in-patient Unit consists of 12 beds, and is run by a dedicated and professional team of clinical and palliative care consultants, medical and nursing staff, physiotherapists, occupational therapist, administrators, social workers and complementary therapists, and our spiritual care team.
- Out-patient Clinics
As well as the palliative care offered by the Hospice in our in-patients beds, we also provide a range of care in our out-patient clinics. Of those who attend these clinics, many have been discharged from a stay at the Hospice, and others have been referred by their healthcare professional.

In our Living Well Centre, located at the Hospice, Chester, we offer specialist care to patients with life-limiting illnesses. Our trained staff are able to deliver an individual plan of care, designed to address each aspect of a person’s needs – medical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual. We aim to provide the tools and assistance needed to allow patients to live well in their own homes.
