We know that when you’re affected by a serious illness you will have your own wellbeing and support needs, whether you’re a patient, carer, family member or someone who has experienced a bereavement. The Living Well service at Katharine House is here to support you during such a time of change and need. 

Partnership with the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH)

On 1 April 2021 our partnership with the OUH came into force. This means that the management of our clinical services has now been transferred to the Trust. Read more on our What we do page.
