Mary Potter Hospice

Admission to Mary Potter Hospice is for people with life-limiting illnesses whose care needs require specialist palliative care management.  Care is provided by a multi-disciplinary team which is comprised of doctors, nurses, social workers, allied health and pastoral care.

Established in 1976, the Mary Potter Hospice has developed an excellent reputation in palliative care for people with terminal illness through the skilled and dedicated services provided by our doctors, nurses and pastoral care, all of whom are supported by a committed team of volunteers.

The 16 bed unit is comprised of 14 single rooms with ensuites and one shared room with ensuite, for both private and public patients. Each room has outdoor access to garden areas. Two lounge areas and a kitchen is available for visitors. A chapel is open 24 hours a day for prayer or quiet contemplation.

We encourage visitors to our patients and have flexible visiting hours. The number of visitors and time of visiting may be restricted at the discretion of the nursing staff depending upon your clinical requirements and consideration of other patients in the area.
In the best interest of your recovery we encourage you to enjoy our hospital quiet time between 1pm and 3pm each afternoon.

Mary Potter Palliative Care Unit is supported by the Mary Potter Foundation.
