St Michael’s Hospice
St Michael’s Hospice is an independent charity that exists to help, support and care for patients and families affected by a terminal illness.
As a charity, we need to raise over £5.8 million a year to ensure we can continue to provide our care and support for free. 90% of this funding comes from our local community through donations and fundraising events.
Our multi-disciplinary team includes doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, complementary therapists, social workers, chaplains and counsellors.
Specialist Hospice staff work together and often in partnership with the NHS to relieve patients’ symptoms, control their pain and help them to live well until the end of life.
We provide Inpatient services, hospice daycare and support for patients in a range of settings, including their homes.
We are also there to ensure loved ones have access to the appropriate care and support they need to cope with the complex feelings and lifestyle changes caused by a terminal illness.
St Michael’s Hospice provides all its care free-of-charge to patients, their families and carers.
This care is made possible by supporters taking part in fundraising events, playing our lottery, shopping at our retail outlets, making charitable donations and leaving gifts in their wills.
We couldn’t offer the outstanding care we do without the support of our amazing community in and around Herefordshire who actively fundraise, donate and volunteer for St Michael’s.
