About Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice

Here at Sue Ryder Wheatfields, we combine specialist palliative care for managing pain and other symptoms, with other emotional, practical and wellbeing support.

Our inpatient hospice offers expert care and 24 hour monitoring, to make sure you are as comfortable as possible. Sue Ryder Nurses, as part of our specialist team, help with managing pain and alleviating symptoms. We’re here for practical and emotional support too. 

Our expert team includes Consultants, specialist doctors, Sue Ryder Nurses, healthcare assistants, physiotherapists, occupational and complementary therapists. We make a personalised care plan for you, combining your wishes with our experts’ advice to meet your needs.

Community services

Our community team, made up of Clinical Nurse Specialists who are supported by our medical team, provide specialist support and care in your own home. We personalise your care and support based on your wishes and preferred place of care.

We offer specialist advice and support around symptom control, medication and therapeutic treatments and are there to support you to be as independent as possible for as long as possible.

Day therapy services

Our day services help support people to be cared for at home for as long as possible, and give you access to necessary services and expert care as you need it. We provide practical and emotional support. By providing day services we also aim to give carers a break too.

We also run "Living Well" groups which aim to support you and develop skills and strategies to deal with things like breathlessness and anxiety.

Whether you’re coping with a terminal illness or facing the loss of someone close, we’re here to help you. At Wheatfields, we will help you to live the best life you can.

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

It’s hard to put into words. But one word stands out, which is ‘amazing’. Sue Ryder are just absolutely phenomenal. My dad was so appreciative of the care he received. He was so fond of the carers and nurses.
