Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice

The Phyllis Tuckwell opened in 1979 in Farnham and provides specialist care to adults with life-limiting illnesses such as cancer, HIV and motor neurone disease. In addition to its 20 in-patient beds, the Hospice has a thriving Day Care Centre offering about 2000 attendances each year and an experienced Home Support Team. The unit aims to provide individualised, high quality care and support for patients, their family and friends through the combined efforts of a specialist care team comprising doctors, nurses, a physiotherapist, a chaplain, patient welfare officers, complementary and occupational therapists and bereavement counsellors to name but a few assisted by many hundreds of committed volunteers.

Most families living in West Surrey and North and Mid Hampshire know of a friend or relative who has been cared for at the Hospice. As a charity we rely almost totally on the generosity of those families, together with local businesses to raise some 3 million annually in running costs.

If you can help us by organising an event of your own, however small, or by becoming one of our volunteers, we would be delighted to hear from you.
