How We Can Help

St Gemma’s Hospice provides the best possible care and support for local people with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

We specialise in pain relief and symptom control to help people live as well as possible, for as long as possible. This is known as palliative care.

It’s a friendly, warm and safe place at the heart of the local community with a large range of expert services to support patients, their families and friends, both in the Hospice and in the community.

St Gemma’s welcomes and provides care to everyone regardless of people’s age, gender, disability, race, religion, sexual orientation or diagnosis. All St Gemma’s services are provided completely free of charge.

We also offer training to health professionals from across the city through our Academic Unit of Palliative Care.
