Mary Potter Hospice

Admission to Mary Potter Hospice is for privately insured or privately funded patients with life-limiting illnesses who require specialist palliative care. Mary Potter Hospice is not a long term facility.

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 a multidisciplinary team comprising doctors, nurses, social worker, physiotherapist,  music therapist pastoral care and a complementary therapy team, all of whom are supported by a committed team of volunteers.

The 15 bed unit is comprised of 15 single rooms with an ensuite toilet and shower.  Each room has outdoor access to garden areas. Two lounge areas and a kitchen are 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.
