Working closely with other health care professionals, we provide quality specialist palliative and end of life care for the people, relatives and carers of our local community.
Make a Donation
Now more than ever we need your support. The Hospice, which is not part of the NHS, receives only 25% of its income from government funding meaning it has to raise just over £3 million each year from donations, fundraising events and charity shops [Charity Registration No. 515516].
