Our patients’ well-being is important to us. It's at the heart of what we do every day.

Throughout the pandemic we've worked really hard to adapt our services, so that we can limit the risk to the people in our care, whilst continuing to offer physical and emotional support. Our focus is on the safety and wellbeing of all our patients, staff, volunteers, and supporters, whilst continuing to provide our vital services to local people with a terminal illness.
