We provide incredible palliative care for people with life-limiting illnesses, helping people live as well as possible with the effects of their illness by offering symptom management and support from a team of healthcare professionals. Nettlebed Hospice has an inpatient unit with 12 beds, located either in single rooms or single-sex rooms of two or three beds. These are all on the first floor and look out onto our wonderful grounds. We provide a 7-day community nursing service as well as day hospice services through which we are able to support patients and their families at home.

Our care services

We provide incredible care for people with life-limiting illness. Whether it’s bringing comfort to someone’s final days or enabling them to make the most of their life, we are here for our patients and those important to them.

We treat everyone in our care as an individual, taking the time to see the person, not the condition. We enable people to live the life they want, and do everything we can to ensure their time with us is the best it can be.

Meet the team

  • Stewart Marks

    Hospice Director

    I joined Sue Ryder as Hospice Director in September 2014. The main focus of my role is securing strong relationships with the various Clinical Commissioning Groups, stakeholders, supporters and fundraisers. Before joining Sue Ryder, I was an independent consultant in the charity sector and prior to that I spent 10 years working with Marie Curie Cancer Care. I am experienced in charity governance having chaired the Trustee Board of LBGT Youth Scotland.

  • Selina Miles

    Ward Manager

    I believe passionately in ensuring each patient and their family receives the best possible care during their stay with us. I have worked in oncology and palliative care for the last 17 years and love working in these specialities. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and looking after my nine tortoises!

  • Karen Guy

    Head of Clinical Services

    I’m responsible for leading a safe, caring, effective and responsive service for all the patients and families that we serve in South Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. I’ve worked in the NHS for most of my career in nurse specialist and management roles, specialising in oncology, palliative care and long-term conditions. I’m excited about developing services for Sue Ryder with those who have used our services and can give an expert view. I enjoy weekend breaks to European cities, cycling, playing the ukulele and singing ‘a capella’.

  • Tracey Hancock

    Head of Fundraising

    I joined Sue Ryder as Head of Hospice Fundraising in December 2014, and am responsible for leading the fundraising across Duchess of Kent, Nettlebed, Newbury and Wokingham hospices. My role is focused on working with the fundraising teams to engage the community, corporate partners, and supporters in helping us to raise the funds we need to continue to offer our incredible care and to raise awareness of the work we do with the wider general public, as well as building strong relationships with staff and volunteers to help us meet our fundraising objectives.

How to get referred

Referrals to all our services are made by a healthcare professional from hospital and community services. Patients can be referred to us by their consultant, general practitioner (GP), community clinical nurse specialist (CNS) or district nurse.

We accept patients from South Oxfordshire and South Buckinghamshire following agreement with the patient, the healthcare team making the referral and the patient’s GP.

We are happy to consider patients from outside these areas if they have a strong preference for receiving care at Nettlebed Hospice.
