Our Philosophy of Care

'You matter because you are you’ – Dame Cicely Saunders 

At Katharine House Hospice we aim to provide a sanctuary – time out from a busy world.  Our environment is a welcoming, warm, comfortable and safe home from home – a place where hope is kept alive and laughter is often heard.

Our patients and those close to them can expect quality and choice in the services provided – they will have space for personal expression and help to achieve their desired goals.

Our specialist staff are educated to deliver individualised treatment and symptom control so as to maximise quality of life and optimise comfort.  They can be trusted to apply their knowledge and skills in pursuit of excellence because our patients are special to us.

All staff, volunteers and friends of Katharine House Hospice believe in the human values of respect and compassion.  We seek to empathise with all who access our services so that we can continue to meet the complex and changing needs of our patients and their loved ones.
