A Counselling and Support Service adds to our offer of comprehensive Hospice Palliative Care.  In December 2019 we opened the UK’s first ever Cottage Hospice, an innovative service that aims to de-medicalise death, empowering ‘families’ to remain the primary caregiver and continue to care for the patient in a Home Plus environment.
