Statement of purpose

St Elizabeth Hospice aims to improve life for people living with a progressive illness by:

  • Providing multi-disciplinary holistic specialist and dedicated palliative care services to patients, their families and carers. 
  • Working alongside other statutory and voluntary agencies to provide specialist and dedicated palliative care, in a timely manner, where the patient wishes to be. 
  • Acting as a resource to the local community regarding general and specialist palliative care to increase confidence and competence in improving life for people living with a progressive illness.
  • Providing care that respects the choices made by patients and their families so that patients are treated in their preferred place and die in their place of choice where possible.
  • Working towards equitable provision of all services, leading to increased use of services by people with non-malignant progressive disease, and those from seldom-heard communities. 

All of the above goals will be monitored through quantitative and qualitative data collection and audit processes.
