At Saint Catherine’s we are doing everything we can to keep our patients, families, staff , volunteers and supporters safe at this difficult time.
Our key clinical services are still running, which means that patients are still being cared for in the hospice and at home.
However, in line with Government guidance and with safety paramount, we have taken the decision to reduce some face-to-face services and restrict visitors on site. Also, our hospice shops will be closed for the time being and we have postponed all of our fundraising events that were planned during the next few months.
Every decision being made is in the best interests of our patients, families, volunteers and staff.
We need your continued support and help more than ever as we continue to pay and support all our members of staff – we appreciate every donation, every message and every offer of support.

In-Patient Unit

Saint Catherine’s In-Patient Unit has 18 en-suite rooms, each one offering 24-hour specialist symptom control and end of life care. Our nurses, doctors, therapists and other healthcare professionals provide specialist care, tailored specifically to the patient’s individual needs and wishes, in a comforting environment where patients and their families can feel supported.

Caring For You

When you are cared for by Saint Catherine’s, you can utilise the knowledge and skills of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, complementary therapists, occupational therapists, support workers for your loved ones, spiritual care staff, social workers and more.

This all adds up to a patient centred, tailored approach to our care. Everyone who is cared for by Saint Catherine’s is treated as an individual and we want to make sure you are as comfortable as possible and your needs are catered for.

All of this, along with our recent CQC rating of ‘Outstanding’, means you can be sure you’re getting the highest standard of care.

Creating A Homely Feel

Each room opens out on to our award winning gardens, helping create a peaceful and homely space for you to enjoy throughout your time at Saint Catherine’s. All patients and their visitors are free to use the garden space, it is easily accessible for patients who are independently mobile and those who need assistance.

As well as serving home-cooked meals and refreshments throughout the day, our volunteers are always on hand to make patients and families more comfortable. If you or your loved ones need anything, please just ask, we try to cater for every need and nothing is too much trouble.
