Mary Potter Hospice
The Mary Potter Northern Supportive Care Unit provides care for patients with progressive, active, life-limiting disease. Supportive care encompasses physical, social, psychological and spiritual care for patients and their family. It aims at minimising the impact of the progressive illness so that patients may have the maximum function and comfort possible, within the limits of their illness.
We support you with:
- The control of symptoms
- Terminal care
To ensure a seamless transfer between home or hospital, we work closely with the Northern Palliative Care Service, and provide referral to a specialist unit if required.
The unit provides comfortable facilities for both patients and family members. Family members may stay overnight and also utilise the family room, which caters for younger children. All rooms are equipped with ensuites and a private courtyard to encourage independence and well being during a challenging time.
Our chapel is open 24 hours a day for prayer or quiet contemplation.
Please speak to your GP if you or a family member require admission
