Our dedicated multi-disciplinary team consists of doctors, nurses, therapists, counsellors and support staff, who work to ensure that patients are able to live as full a life as possible in an environment that enhances well-being, privacy and caring. We provide our outstanding care through:-

  • An inpatient unit
  • A hospice at home and care service
  • A day care hospice service
  • Outpatient clinics
  • Working in close partnership with Hampshire Hospitals specialist palliative care service, community and hospital teams, as well as community care teams and GPs.

The Hospice team, together with our Palliative Care team, community nurses and a dedicated team of volunteers, have one simple goal — to bring peace, comfort and dignity to every patient they see.

Whether it’s using their expert knowledge of pain management and symptom control, their experience of caring for very sick people, supporting family members in distress or simply providing a hand to hold in the middle of the night – we are here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to provide care, hope and support.

We provide specialist end of life care in an environment that enhances well-being, privacy and caring. We can also provide a short stay facility to regulate symptoms and pain control, with patients returning home for many months of improved quality of life – possibly before readmission for terminal care.

We also provide thriving Day Care facilities, a Hospice at Home Service, Home Care, Line Care and consultants’ clinics.
