Our Manorlands Hospice is situated in West Yorkshire on the northern edge of the village of Oxenhope. We provide palliative care and complementary therapy services to support people with life-limiting conditions which can involve complex physical or psychological problems. Our care focuses on helping resolve these problems whilst supporting family, carers and close friends. This care is known as specialist palliative care. We offer this support to people living in Craven, Airedale, and Wharfedale as well as central, northern and western areas of Bradford.

Our care services

We provide advice, treatment and support for our patients and their families to help people live independently. We also provide support for GPs and nurses and offer inpatient stays whilst also having patients attend our day hospice and visiting people in their own homes. We have 16 single bedded rooms, seven with ensuite.

We work very closely with the specialist teams in the local hospitals to ensure that treatment and care is continued after a person is discharged home or transferred to our inpatient unit.

We also provide a 24-hour advice service to professionals across the district.

What people say about our care

I was impressed with the care I received at Manorlands Hospice. I could not think of a better place for me to be cared for. The level and the quality of the care I received there were absolutely extraordinary. Before being admitted to the hospice, I felt I was going downhill for a long time.
