The Hospice is the only adult Hospice for the people of North Staffordshire and surrounding villages. We were established in 1973 and have grown over the years not only in size but also in the range and amount of care services available for local people.
Our consultant led multi-disciplinary clinical team provide specialist palliative care* for people facing cancer and other life-limiting illnesses; and help and support for their families and carers.
We do not charge for the care and help we provide, we rely on voluntary donations and some statutory funding to meet our running and development costs.
We have no association with any other organisation, even those national charities who share a similar name. Our ability to meet the needs of the community we serve is very dependent on the support of local people, groups, businesses and organisations.
Our team of nurses, doctors, healthcare assistants, volunteers, chaplains, social workers, therapists, and support staff care for all the needs of our patients facing a terminal illness: physical, emotional, social and spiritual. Together we aim to help patients both at home and in the Hospice to achieve the very best quality of life, whatever their life expectancy, days, weeks or months.

*Palliative care is the total care of patients whose disease no longer responds to curative treatment, and for whom the aim must be the best quality of life for them and their families - according to the World Health Organisation.
