Mary Potter Hospice

Established in 1976, the Mary Potter Hospice has developed an excellent reputation in acute palliative care for people with life limiting illness.

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

There are 15 single rooms with ensuite facilities and access to outdoor seating and garden areas.

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.

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

Palliative Care in the Home is another service available for palliative patients.
