Hospice Information

St Teresa’s Hospice provides specialist palliative care for people with progressive, life limiting illnesses which may be malignant or non-malignant. We also support their families, carers and others close to them. Care is delivered by a multi-disciplinary team (doctors, nurses, counsellors, social workers and therapists), who have training in palliative care, which is their core specialty.
