Arthur Rank Hospice supports people in Cambridgeshire living with a life-limiting illness and those who need end-of-life care. Our services are provided free of charge to patients and their families. Our aim is to provide the highest quality care, helping them to help make every moment count. 

We care for more than 3600 patients each year across the Hospice in Cambridge, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients’ own homes via the Arthur Rank Community Team. Our specialist and community-based palliative care supports patients with a life-limiting diagnosis to improve their quality of life and fulfil their choices at the end of their lives.   

The care and support provided by our Inpatient Unit, Day Therapy and Hospice at Home teams is practical, holistic and tailored to the individual. Programmes may include psychological support, physiotherapy, complementary therapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitative support, counselling, bereavement and spiritual support. Outpatient services such as medical and pain clinics, as well as our lymphoedema service, are based in our Bradbury Wellness Centre at the Hospice.

As experts in our field, we are passionate about sharing our specialist knowledge and continuing to raise the standard of palliative and end-of-life care across the region, running a variety of courses for healthcare professionals.

As a charity, we need to secure £8.1 million every year to deliver our services free of charge to patients and their loved ones. About half of this currently comes from statutory sources, with further funds raised by our Bistro, Education and Conference Centre and Hair and Nail Salon. We are hugely grateful to our local community, which contributes the remainder by raising funds in a number of ways, including: donating to our shops; participating in our events; taking on personal challenges; holding fundraisers; or leaving us a gift in their Will

We are always looking for new ways to raise funds so that we can continue to provide and develop our vital services long into the future.
