Welcome to St Gemma’s Hospice

We are here to provide the best possible care and quality of life for local people with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses – both at the Hospice and out in the community.

We offer care tailored to the needs of our patients and their carers in the Hospice’s In-Patient Unit, through the St Gemma’s community team and via our day services, which includes a Day Hospice and Out-Patient Clinic. St Gemma’s welcomes and provides care to everyone regardless of your age, gender, disability, race, religion or sexual orientation.

St Gemma’s is the largest hospice in Yorkshire and one of the largest in the UK.

Supported by the Community

St Gemma’s is a Leeds-based charity, providing all our services for free – therefore we rely on the support and generosity of the community to help us raise the funds needed. Thank you to everyone who contributes to raise the £10million it costs each year to keep our doors open.
