How we work

St Christopher’s Hospice exists to promote and provide skilled and compassionate palliative care of the highest quality.

"You gave us a sensitive, caring, dignified and humane end to our mum's life"


A warm welcome to St Christopher’s. We are proud to offer world class palliative and end of life care to everyone who needs it, whenever or wherever that may be. We are also here for the people closest to you.

We passionately believe in the words of our founder, Dame Cicely Saunders, who said: “You matter because you are you and you matter until the last moment of your life.” That means we’ll listen to your story, adapt our treatments and advice to suit your particular needs, and we won’t stop until we can give you the best possible support.

The hospice itself is a friendly, vibrant place, and as unlike a traditional hospital as we can make it. But rest assured, our medical and nursing care is excellent and our clinical teams are highly professional and devoted to doing their best for you.

However, as we often say, we’re more than just a hospice. We are proud of our community programmes that offer practical, emotional and spiritual support to over 7,500 people in the local area, most of whom we will help to continue living at home. If you’re one of them, we are ready to help you too.

We are a place for everyone.

We rely on donations to care for our patients and those close to them. Please help us to raise funds to continue this important work by donating to St Christopher’s. Thank you.
