St Elizabeth Hospice improves life for people living in East Suffolk living with a progressive or terminal illness. Our work is centred on an individual’s needs, which means specialist support, whenever and wherever it is needed, whether at home, in the community or at the hospice. Through medicine and therapy we help to improve the quality of life for patients in our local communities.
