Nottinghamshire Hospice is a registered charity and regulated by the Care Quality Commission. It cares for people who are registered with a GP within Nottinghamshire City and County that have been diagnosed with any Life Limiting Illness. All Nottinghamshire Hospice Services are delivered and based on individual patient needs; it is a way of caring for people. We aim to add life to days for people that have been told that their illness cannot be cured. It helps people to live as actively as possible once they have been diagnosed until the end of their lives, however long that may be. The highest value is put on dignity, choice and respect.

Nottinghamshire Hospice offers a free service to patients and their loved ones which aims to take care of not only the physical needs of patients but also values their emotional, spiritual and social needs. We provide support to families and close friends, both during the illness and in bereavement.
Nottinghamshire Hospice works in close partnership with other Palliative care providers across the East Midlands to ensure a consistency of high quality palliative care. Location map...
Hospice at Home
We have a Hospice at Home service and Day Therapy facility, complete with Complementary Therapy, Physiotherapy, Counselling and Bereavement services. We have 148 employees and around 300 volunteers. In order to run the Hospice we require £3 million per year, of which one third comes from NHS funding. The rest of the shortfall is raised through our retail division, donations, legacies, weekly lottery and fundraising activities.
All services are provided free of charge and offered regardless of age, gender, ethnic origin or religion. Each year we provide over 7,000 Day Therapy places for patients with a life limiting illness and their families through our Day Therapy facility and deliver over 36,000 hours of care through our Hospice at Home service.

Why Janis has worked for Nottinghamshire Hospice for over 16 years
“I have worked for Nottinghamshire Hospice since 1998. I started work here as a Hospice at Home nurse after previously working for 13 years in palliative care in a hospice in Glasgow. I really value the ability to make a difference at the end of someone’s life, both for our patients and for their carers".
What Nottinghamshire Hospice means to me
Sheila Bramley told us how much she appreciated her mum attending the hospice. "For Mum the Hospice was her oasis in life. Had she been able she would have moved in! She was among friends who cared; was able to maintain her dignity; she could be herself and talk about anything she wanted without the pressure of feeling she had to be strong for her family..."
