Arthur Rank Hospice


Charity Name: Arthur Rank Hospice

Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire who are living with a life-limiting illness. Our care and services are provided free of charge to patients, to help them and their loved ones to make every moment count.

Arthur Rank Hospice Charity is best known for delivering vital care to over 900 patients each year through our 12 bedded specialist palliative Inpatient Unit, day therapy and Hospice at Home Services. However the range of services the Charity provides is much broader comprising of the Specialist Palliative Care Home Team, the Hudson day treatment centre in Wisbech, patient and family support (including counselling, bereavement and spiritual support), lymphoedema care, complementary therapy, transport services and small grants which collectively support two thousand further patients.

Our Education and Learning Department, who since 2015 have also delivered training with The Gold Standards Framework, ensure that we share our specialist knowledge and expertise with other healthcare professionals, helping to increase the excellence of palliative care across the region.

To supplement the NHS contribution, the charity are required to raise £2 million annually to fund the additional services provided by the Hospice

In April 2015 building commenced of a new 24-bed hospice in Shelford Bottom. The new hospice will allow us to offer a more spacious, attractive and therapeutic environment, with better facilities and increased service capacity. The project cost stands at £10.5 million and the Charity is working hard to raise the remaining funds needed. We hope to open the doors to patients in late 2016.

Our professional, compassionate and practical services deliver care, counselling and education, helping patients to live well and their families to live on.
