St Peter & St James Hospice provide specialist care, love and support for those living with progressive, life limiting illnesses from East and West Sussex. We aim to meet the needs of patients and their loved ones and encourage and enable patients to live their life to its full potential despite their illness.
We have a team of seven Specialist Palliative Care Nurses who are there to support 200 patients at home, seven days a week. 96% of our patients are supported in their own homes.
Our nurses provide advice on symptoms, psychological support to both the patient and their family. They also provide advice and support to NHS community teams, such as your GP and District Nursing Team and other professionals.
Our team of fully-trained community nurses are often confused with Macmillan or Marie Curie nurses. However, we do not receive any funding from Macmillan or Marie Curie and are dependent upon the generosity of our supporters to provide the funds we need to cover the cost of providing our care.
All of our services are free of charge. We receive less than 16% of our income from the government and have to raise £2.2 million each year through fundraising.
Please join to help us raise the funds we need to continue our special work. The lottery costs just £1 a week and you could win up to £25,000!
