St Oswalds Hospice
Newcastle upon Tyne
St Oswald's Hospice provides specialist care for local adults, young people and children.
We are situated in Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne and our purpose-built facilities offer a range of flexible services to North East families. We have retail outlets across Newcastle and Gateshead.
Within our adult service, we offer a day hospice, lymphoedema service, an inpatient unit, complementary therapy service, consultant outpatient clinic and an outreach service. Adults with life limiting conditions are referred to us for pain and symptom management and end of life care. We care for patients with cancer, as well as those with end stage neurological, cardiac and respiratory conditions.
Within our Children's Service, we offer specialist short breaks to children and young people with life limiting conditions and their families. Children from 0 - 18 can benefit from our care at St Oswald's. We have also developed a Young Adults service for those aged 18-25, to enable us to continue to support children in our care who are reaching adulthood and perhaps those who have already left the service.
Our multi-disciplinary team at St Oswald's includes doctors, nurses, physios, occupational therapists, social workers, chaplain support and complementary therapists. We are a registered charity and we rely on the generosity of local businesses, individuals, groups and companies to enable us to care for local people, when they need us most. Our annual running costs now exceed £10million – of which £6.5 million must be raised through voluntary giving.
We make no charge for any of our services; ensuring hospice care is available to everyone.
