About Sue Ryder Palliative Care Hub South Oxfordshire
Sue Ryder Palliative Care Hub South Oxfordshire operates from Battle Barns in Crowmarsh, Wallingford, and supports people aged 18 and over who are living with life-limiting conditions such as cancer, heart failure and lung disease.
Our team of Sue Ryder Nurses, doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, family support and befrienders combine specialist medical care for managing pain and other symptoms, with emotional, practical and spiritual support. We provide a Hospice at Home service, Day Hospice, and Care Coordination and Advice Line.
Hospice at Home
The Hospice at Home service provides care for patients in their own home in the last 12 weeks of life. The service delivers expert care and support to relieve physical symptoms and emotional distress, as well as advising the patient's family how best to help care for their loved one. Assistance is provided with personal care and repositioning.
The Clinical Nurse Specialist team provide advanced symptom management assessment in the home, coordinate planning of care and communicate with other Community Services, such as GP and District Nurses. Many of the Clinical Nurse Specialists are non-medical prescribers, which means they can prescribe at the bedside to provide urgent medications.
The Hospice at Home service is available seven days a week, 8am-8pm and from July 2022 Sue Ryder Palliative Care Hub South Oxfordshire is also offering a brand new night service, giving care through the night between the hours of 10pm and 7am.
This service has been provided virtually during COVID restrictions, to support symptom management, and social and emotional support. Face to face day hospice services are currently being developed to look at local patient and family needs.
Our Day Hospice programme supports people living with a life-limiting condition requiring palliative care in South Oxfordshire.
Our fully individualised approach is delivered by a team of experts offering small group sessions to best meet the needs of our patients, help manage symptoms and improve wellbeing.

The Sue Ryder community nurses were an unbelievable team providing easily accessible, honest and accurate information and support to Rod, Mum and myself. As a trained nurse of ten years working in intensive care I have often dealt with these situations from the 'other side'. Despite this I felt very much out of my depth in the environment of our own home.
