[HOSPICE AT HOME] Section title

Hospice at home provides nursing care outside of the hospice and in people’s homes, helping care for more than 1000 patients annually. Service users are able to receive the help they need, in the place they choose to receive it. Our expert team listed below are familiar faces out in the community.



Inpatient nursing is our most immediately familiar role for most visitors and patients. This specialised nursing team delivers care in our two wards, Coast and Park, and ensure that St Wilfrid’s Hospice is recognised as an excellent care provider.



[DOCTORS] Section title

Doctors are at the core of our care, delivering expert opinions across a diverse range of medical specialisations, patients and conditions. This diversity is reflected throughout the team with a blend of specialists, trainees and GPs providing care for our service users.


[CARE ASSISTANTS] Section title

Care Assistants represent our hospice in many daily care activities, helping people meet their needs and ensure service users have a high quality of life. Meeting the daily needs of these users and ensuring that rehabilitation and regular patient assessment is carried out is a vital role which ensures that the hospice clinical team can help people when and where they need that help.


[VOLUNTEERS] Section title

Volunteers represent a huge portion of our care at the hospice, with 600 volunteers delivering medicine, driving patients to and from appointments and greeting visitors. These same volunteers also assist in our Inpatient Unit, carry out night sitting services, maintain our hospice grounds and more. We are hugely grateful for their contribution.



Our administrators / support staff  handle vital non-clinical tasks from events management, raising money for the hospice, running our café and hospice shops and ensuring we comply with charity regulations.
