Phyllis Tuckwell is the only Hospice Care service for adult patients, and their families, across the whole of West Surrey and part of North East Hampshire, both in the Hospice, at the Beacon Centre, in patients’ own homes and in the community.
For many patients, when a cure is not possible, Hospice Care offers a more dignified and comfortable alternative to spending time in a hospital. Our care helps patients manage pain and improves the quality of life for both the patient and their family.
Seeking support through our Hospice Care isn’t about giving up hope or hastening death, but rather a way to get the most appropriate care in the last phase of life…because every day is precious.
On April 1st 2015, the Beacon Palliative Care Service in Guildford was transferred to Phyllis Tuckwell. This is great news for patients and relatives across West Surrey and North East Hampshire, who now have one strengthened clinical team providing the best possible care, wherever they want to be – whether at the Hospice, at the Beacon Centre, or in their own homes.
Happy International Nurses Day 2015! To all of our Hospice nurses – thank you.
