With your support we’re opening more beds!

Despite challenging economic times we are committed to opening more beds at our two hospices.  Four more have already opened meaning there are now 9 at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St Austell and 9 at St Julia’s Hospice in Hayle, that’s 18 in total for Cornwall with more planned to open shortly.

About Cornwall Hospice Care

We are a Cornish charity that provides specialist care for people with terminal illnesses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our clinical teams support in and out patients and their families at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St Austell, St Julia’s Hospice in Hayle and in Cornwall’s hospitals, care homes and in the community.

We also run a 24 hour advice line for other healthcare professionals and share our knowledge through education programmes supporting the healthcare workers of the future.

Thank you!

Every year it costs over £5.3 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients, their families and their carers.

Only 19.1% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners who in the last financial year gave us £1 million.

The rest is raised by the people of Cornwall, people like you, who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and donate to, and buy in, our shops.

It’s Hospice UK’s Hospice Care Week 2019 and this year the theme is “This is what it takes”.  We will be taking the opportunity to talk to people across our Cornish charity about what it takes to deliver our specialist 24/7 care.
