Coronavirus Information (Covid-19)

Following Government advice, we have suspended our usual Day Services and the Hospice building is closed. We have adapted our services to offer telephone support, guidance and signposting. Please call 01453 886868. Our Hospice at Home service continues to provide care for people at the end of their lives, in support of the NHS. Hospice at Home referrals must be made via a GP, Community Nurse or Healthcare professional.
