Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire who are living with a life-limiting illness. Care and services are provided free of charge to patients, to help them and their loved ones to make every moment count.
Arthur Rank Hospice Charity is best known for delivering vital care to over 1000 patients each year through a 24 bedded specialist palliative Inpatient Unit, day therapy and Hospice at Home services. However the range of services the Charity provides is much broader comprising of the Specialist Palliative Care Home Team, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech, patient and family support (including counselling, bereavement and spiritual support), lymphoedema care, complementary therapy, pain management clinic, transport services and small grants; which collectively provide more than two thousand further appointments to patients.
The Education and Learning Department, who since 2015 have also delivered training with The Gold Standards Framework, ensure that the Hospice’s specialist knowledge and expertise are shared with other healthcare professionals, helping to increase the excellence of palliative care across the region.
To supplement the NHS contribution, the Charity are required to raise £2 million annually to fund the additional services provided by the Hospice.
On 11 November 2016, doors opened to patients at a new purpose built hospice in Shelford Bottom. Services and care are now delivered from a more spacious, attractive and therapeutic environment. The £10.5 million state-of-the-art build project has been designed with great consideration for the patient’s need, whilst the vastly improved facilities allow for increased service capacity2.
Arthur Rank Hospice’s professional, compassionate and practical services deliver care, counselling and education, helping patients to live well and their families to live on.
