The hospice is a specialist palliative care unit for those whose illness cannot be cured.
The Hospice Trust is a registered charity which supports its NHS partners in the organisation and delivery of specialist palliative care services by: the recruitment, training and organisation of voluntary staff; the on-going provision of additional resources and higher level services not provided by the NHS and the development and improvement of the existing facilities. Our mission is to enhance the environment and help improve the quality of life of our patients and their families.Why the community needs us
Our patients come from all walks of life and from all areas in our local community. Our in-patient and day care services make a significant difference to our patients and their families.Our impact on the community
We recruit twice yearly to enable us to maintain our voluntary services. We meet all prospective volunteers before they attend induction training prior to staring work with us.
