Wakefield Hospice

A picture for Wakefield-Hospice

(Registered Charity Number 518392) Opening its doors in 1990, Wakefield Hospice has continued to offer the highest standard of specialist care in a homely and supportive environment. Demand for our services grew to such an extent in 1999, that a new extension was built taking the number of in-patient beds to 16. On average, the hospice caters for over 300 in- patients and 1,800 day therapy attendances every year. No charge is made for the care, so we rely heavily on fundraising initiatives and the generosity of the community to help meet its running costs of approximately 2.5 million annually.

At the hospice we....... Provide specialist palliative care for people with life threatening illnesses, usually, but not exclusively cancer *** Provide pain and symptom control, terminal care and day therapy services for adults and bereavement services for adults and children *** Serve the city of Wakefield and surrounding areas *** Aim to maintain and enhance the quality of life for our patients *** Treat all patients equally with dignity, sensitivity, compassion and understanding *** Care for patients' families during and after the illness *** Continue to develop specialist palliative care within local health services *** Support health care professionals through education

On average it costs...... 120 per patient per day therapy session, 370 per in-patient per bed per night. With circa 20% of our annual running costs being PCT and Government funded we need all the help and support we can from you to be able to continue providing help and support to our patients and their relatives when they need it most.
