St Oswald's 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.
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 service for young adults, 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. Our annual running costs amount to £9.5 million – 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.
