St Peter & St James Hospice
It has always been extremely important to support our local hospices, but today it is more important than ever before. Because of your weekly £1s, we are still running our weekly draw and able to generate a regular and reliable income that St Peter and St James Hospice can rely on. So THANK YOU!
St Peter & St James Hospice provides expert and compassionate hospice care to adults with cancer and other life limiting illnesses such as neurological conditions and far-advanced organ failure in Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, Uckfield, Lewes and the surrounding villages. They also support their families and friends through the challenges of bereavement and grief.
The hospice’s approach enables people to live well with their illness and ultimately, to die with dignity in their preferred place of choice. It also enables family and friends to cope with the difficulties involved when a relative receives a life limiting diagnosis, taking on the role of carer and coping with bereavement and grief.
St Peter & St James Hospice have a multi-disciplinary team which provides services including nursing and medical care, counselling, welfare services, physiotherapy, complementary therapy and spiritual care.
Supporting patients in their own home is also a very important aspect of the hospice’s work, which is achieved through Clinical Nurse Specialists. They are specially trained palliative care nurses offering advice and support to patients at home. Often known as Community Nurses and funded entirely by the Hospice, they also facilitate access to our entire range of hospice services.
