Our inpatient unit (IPU) is the heart of our hospice. Our nurses and doctors provide free specialist, personalised care to our patients around the clock.

But they are so much more than that. They are the friendly, smiling face every morning, afternoon and evening. The ones who adjust the pillows, bring the ice chips to soothe a sore throat, the ones who are there to explain, calm and reassure and listen to people’s wishes, stories and needs when their time is so precious.  They are the ones who are there every step of the way to make sure that every moment matters for patients and their loved ones.

Our inpatient unit makes a world of difference to patients every single day. It is a safe place that is so much more than a hospital, so much more than a medical centre; it is a place that makes every moment matter.

It costs £8,308 to care for one patient on our IPU for one month, and on average, we care for 17 people every month.
