Whatever your door, Phyllis Tuckwell is open for end of life care for all
10th-14th October is Hospice Care Week, a national campaign organised and co-ordinated by Hospice UK, which this year highlights the incredible work of hospices in opening up end of life care for all.
Phyllis Tuckwell offers end of life care to everyone in its catchment area who is living with an advanced or terminal illness, no matter who they are, what their culture or background is, or what their circumstances are. It is committed to providing accessible services and support, and respecting the needs of each individual. Its care is available to everyone in its catchment area of West Surrey and North-East Hampshire, who is living with an advanced or terminal illness, such as cancer, and for their loved ones too. As well as caring for patients at its Hospice in Farnham and Beacon Centre in Guildford, Phyllis Tuckwell’s staff and volunteers also visit patients at home and in care homes, extending its care and support well beyond its hospice walls.
“Everyone deserves quality end of life care – whoever and wherever they are,” said Dr. Cate Seton-Jones, Medical Director at Phyllis Tuckwell. “However, around 100,000 people in the UK don’t get the care they need at the end of life, and some groups miss out more than others: people from LGBT+ communities, ethnically diverse people, people experiencing poverty or homelessness, travellers, and people in prison. We’re working together with our partners in our local healthcare network to ensure that everyone, no matter who they are, where they are or why they are ill, gets the quality end of life care they deserve. We are open to all, and at the end of your life, whoever you are, we are here to support you and your loved ones.”
