Because you care, we can
Countess Mountbatten House is a truly amazing specialist palliative care service that touches the lives of more than 3000 adults with life-limiting cancer each year throughout Southampton and South Central Hampshire.
The service comprises of 4 key areas: a 25 bed in-patient unit, a day care centre and a community team of doctors and nurses all based at Countess Mountbatten House in West End, Southampton and a hospital palliative care team based within Southampton General Hospital. Providing vital support to these key service areas are physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers, chaplains, house-keeping staff and over 180 volunteers all working together to ensure the best possible care is provided to patients and their families and carers.
Supporting the work of the hospice staff is the Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity. The aim of the charity is to provide funding that is over and above that provided by the NHS, enabling the services offered to be enhanced, all with the aim of providing additional care and improving patients’ quality of life.
