Countess Mountbatten Hospice provides specialist palliative care services for patients with life-limiting illnesses.

Palliative care is the term used to describe the active holistic care of patients with advanced, progressive illness.

It includes the management of pain and other symptoms, as well as the provision of psychological, social and spiritual care. It is called a ‘holistic’ approach, because it deals with you as a ‘whole’ person.

Most of the people we care for are supported in the community, in their own home or care home.

We also provide support in a day care setting at the Hazel Centre, in hospital and in our 25-bed inpatient unit. The community we serve has a population of approximately 600,000 people across a catchment area spanning around 460 square miles.

If you have any further questions, a member of our team will be happy to advise further.
