About Sue Ryder St John's Hospice

Hospice care is what we call 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.

You might stay with us to receive inpatient care for a short time, or for a longer time. We also have a palliative care at-home service so can provide care to you in your own home.

Michelle shares her experience of St John's Palliative Care Hub

"When my Mum was told her cancer had come back, the Palliative Care Hub worked really well in terms of coordinating between the different services. Sometimes it's scary if someone is really unwell because trying to get hold of their GP is virtually impossible. With the Hub, I felt like I wasn’t on my own."

When my wife Gail was battling bowel cancer, in the latter days of her life it was suggested that she spend some time in the care of St John’s Hospice. She did and they treated her so well that she became calm and relaxed, and more able to face her future. Of course, myself and my family realised how hard the Sue Ryder Nurses work to achieve this.
