About Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice

Hospice care is the treatment and support we offer to people with life-limiting conditions. We combine specialist medical care for managing pain and other symptoms, with other emotional, practical and spiritual support. There are a number of ways our expert teams can care for you. 

You might stay with us to receive inpatient care and need support from our doctors, Sue Ryder Nurses, healthcare assistants, physiotherapists, occupational therapists or our wellbeing and community support team. They’re very experienced in tailoring the most appropriate care for people who are going through difficult, stressful times.

If you are comfortable and supported at home and prefer to stay there, we can offer the same expert care to you through our Community Hub services. These services offer tailored activities and therapy sessions both in-person and virtually.

When end-of-life care in your own home is the best choice for you, our Hospice at Home service can help.

Whether at home or at the hospice, wherever we see you, Sue Ryder staff provide you with compassionate, expert care.

Watch: What’s it like inside a Sue Ryder hospice?

When we arrived at Leckhampton, the care, love & support was incredible. Brenda had become frightened of hospitals, but as soon as she got to the hospice, she felt reassured, and we found peace. She couldn’t have had a better place to spend her final days.
