Who we care for | St Joseph's Hospice

Who we care for

We care for people aged over 18 years who have a life-limiting condition which cannot be cured, or who have a terminal illness. Many of the people we care for have illnesses such as cancer, chronic lung disease, heart disease or neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS) or motor neurone disease (MND) but many people have much rarer conditions.

Each year, we provide palliative care and support to over 2,100 patients. We also support 1,900 of their families and carers.

In-patient, day hospice, community-based and out-patient services are available to people living in the City of London and the boroughs of Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Newham. People living in the surrounding boroughs can also access in-patient services.

Our services are available to everyone in the communities we serve. We care for people from all religions and none.

If you would like to talk to us about making a referral or whether you or someone you know is eligible to receive care here, please contact our First Contact team on 0300 30 30 400.
