Clinical

As a leading healthcare charity, we’re driven by our mission: To care compassionately for adults living with a terminal illness, and those closest to them, so that they have the best possible quality of life and the patients’ final days are peaceful…because every day is precious.    We are palliative care specialists providing supportive and end of life care at the Hospice in Farnham, the Beacon Centre in Guildford, in care homes and in patients’ own homes, throughout West Surrey and North East Hampshire. Our values are core to the delivery of our service and have enabled us to become highly respected in our local community. It’s an exciting time to join us as we’re currently extending our services, and are looking to resource these developments by employing the best clinical staff.
