HospiceCare North Northumberland

Caring for Life!


HospiceCare,established in 1995, is the main provider of palliative care in North Northumberland, delivering care and support to adults, their families and carers, who have a life limiting illness such as Cancer, Heart Failure, Lung Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease, Parkinson's Disease and Advanced Dementia.

People can access care and support at any stage of their illness, not just at the very end of their life.

HospiceCare is the only palliative care charity in North Northumberland providing this free service.

HospiceCare is one of the few hospices in the UK which provides Day Therapy centres over two sites, operating between Alnwick and Berwick.

HospiceCare is a community nurse-led service, with developing partnerships working with the Primary Health Care Teams, Social Services, Hospitals and all other voluntary organisations.

Although we work closely with the above agencies, as an independent charity, our income is not supported by national charities such as Macmillan and Marie Curie.

HospiceCare operates an Open Doors policy by self-referral or via professionals, and provides information advice and support.
