Visitor information

How to find us

St Oswald’s Hospice, Regent Avenue, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE3 1EE

Visitor times

Relatives, carers and friends can visit our Inpatient Unit at any time during the day. We would suggest, however, that most visitors come in the afternoon or early evening (up until 9pm) to allow time for rest. Children are very welcome and patients’ pets are allowed to visit, as long as you have notified a member of the care team in advance.


If you are visiting St Oswald’s, drinks are available in our Main Reception and Outpatients Reception, for a small charge.

Gosforth High Street is just five minutes’ walk from the Hospice where you can also find supermarkets, cafés and a variety of shops, many of them open until late.

Meals for relatives and visitors

If you’re a visitor on our Inpatient Unit, drinks are available from our ward kitchen. We make no charge, but there’s a collection box should you wish to make a donation.

If you’re a relative staying overnight with us you can pre-order a hot lunch and evening meal from the daily patient menu. Overnight guests may also have cereal and/or toast for breakfast free of charge.
