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.

We also share our skills and knowledge through various education programmes supporting the healthcare workers of the future.


Thank you!

Every year it costs over £5million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients.

The majority of this is raised by the people of Cornwall, people like you.

Dying Matters so remember to 'Pass it on before you pass away'

Dying Matters. It’s important to talk about death, even when we’re very much alive. Does your family know what you want if you’re seriously ill for instance? Do they know if you’re an organ donor?  Our ‘Pass it on before you pass away’ campaign helps you to start those conversations. Our free leaflet encourages you to consider opting in for organ donation and completing an Advance Decision, which explains what you would want if you couldn’t speak for yourself.


St Julia’s Hospice is rated Outstanding.
