Rotherham Hospice

About Rotherham Hospice

Rotherham Hospice places the patient at the centre of everything we do. We are an independent charity and the only adult hospice for the people of Rotherham and surrounding villages.

We began offering Day Hospice services in 1994, and have grown over the years to now providing a 14 bed Inpatient Unit, with 75 Day Hospice places every week and our Hospice Community Team who provide care in the community. We need over £5 million annually to deliver these services and rely heavily upon local people and organisations for their support.

The purpose of Rotherham Hospice is to enhance the quality of life of patients and those important to them through specialist palliative care services and education. The Hospice is committed to achieving this by providing services for patients during the changing phases of their illness. We will offer a well-co-ordinated, multi-professional and ‘seamless’ service, which integrates the Hospice specialist palliative care services with primary, secondary and tertiary health care services, other voluntary and independent agencies, social services and, in the case of children and young people, education services.

Our approach will be non-judgemental and non-discriminatory. We consider it equally important to give support to those who care for our patients, whether they are professional carers, members of the family or friends.It is the aim of Rotherham Hospice to ensure that all staff working within the Hospice and associated services are fully engaged and empowered to provide high quality care.

In addition, that all patients receiving care from the Hospice and associated services, receive a high quality service that is safe, effective, caring, responsive to patient needs and well-led.
