Full Description of Organisation

We provide compassionate care and support for people in our community with a life-limiting illness. Our focus is on quality of life, helping patients to live well and die well.


We give care and support to patients and their families across a 700sq mile area, which includes Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES), and parts of Wiltshire and Somerset. Our services are provided whenever and wherever they are needed; at home, in the Hospice, or in our community. We respect the uniqueness of each patient and their family, and empower them to choose the type of care they receive.


We will deliver our strategy by:

  • Ensuring our patients, their families and carers, and our people remain at our core

  • Partnering to develop the services our communities need in the locations they want

  • Maintaining financial stewardship and outstanding governance

  • Delivering outstanding care and excellence throughout our community

  • Evolving constantly, embracing change and innovation

  • Engaging with our community earlier and leading the conversation about death and dying

  • Preparing and equipping society to embrace the reality that death is a part of life
