About HospiceCare North Northumberland

HospiceCare, established in 1995, is the main provider of palliative care in North Northumberland. We serve a population of around 65,000 people living in some of the most rural parts of the country. (see map below) We have two Wellbeing Centres -  one in Alnwick and one in Berwick.

 

We deliver a person-centered Hospice at Home service offering practical care and support to adults aged 18 years and over, who are living with a terminal illness requiring palliative input. The care is delivered by our Registered Nurses and our experienced team of Hospice Support Workers, 365 days a year day or night, planned or in a crisis, with emphasis on promoting quality of life. Our Hospice at Home service is accessed by a Healthcare professional such as a GP or District Nurse - Ask them to refer you.

We also offer a Family/Bereavement Support Service, Dementia Support Service, and Wellbeing services which can be accessed via self-referral. Our services are delivered free at the point of need. 

This year we expect our running costs to be around £1.4m and will receive a 5% contribution, the rest we have to find from donations, fundraising, legacies, trusts, and our charity shops.

Our Impact

“HospiceCare is such a lovely thing to have. Such lovely people offering a massive amount of help and support. They were strangers, yet I felt like I had known each and every one of them forever.”
