What we do

Our care is for available for anyone suffering from a life-limiting illness. This includes conditions such as cancer, respiratory disease, heart disease, Parkinson’s, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and end stage dementia.

Teesside Hospice is here for you and your whole family. We offer a wide range of services, providing physical, emotional, social, psychological and spiritual support, ensuring we respect and encourage individuality, dignity and self-esteem.

Our holistic approach to care extends to relatives and friends both during their loved one’s illness and through bereavement.

We work in close partnership with all health and social care professionals involved in a person’s care, including GPs and district nurses.

Our aim is to make sure patients and their families have access to specialist palliative care, in the belief that each person is entitled to dignity and choice within the best provision of care.

Each year it costs £2.7 million to provide our services and support 3,000 people across Teesside. The local NHS funding we receive covers around a third of this expenditure, which means the rest of our work is funded by individuals, organisations, businesses and foundations who support us. 

All of our services are free of charge to our patients, their families and carers. Over 140 staff and 450 volunteers help to provide our specialist palliative care.

It costs Teesside Hospice £5,500 each and every day of the year to keep our services running.

An army of committed volunteers support our specialist doctors, nurses, other healthcare professionals and staff to deliver the best possible care to our patients and their families.

We rely heavily on the support of our community – individuals, local groups and businesses to help fund our vital services.
