Objectives

Florence Nightingale Hospice is based on the campus of Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. The Hospice is run by Bucks NHS Healthcare Trust, and partly funded by Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity.

Florence Nightingale Hospice provides a range of palliative and end-of-life care services to people in Buckinghamshire and parts of Oxfordshire and south Bedfordshire who have life-limiting illnesses such as chronic lung conditions, cancer and neurological conditions. It has an In-Patient Unit with twelve beds in the Hospice, and it supports patients in the home through the Nightingale 24/7 Care and Community Nursing Teams.

In addition, the Day Hospice offers physical, therapeutic and emotional support to people who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness, but who are able to live independently at home. The Hospice also runs the Lymphoedema Clinic and cares for and supports families and friends of patients, through the Bereavement Support Team and Florrie’s Children’s Team.

 

Activities

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity commits to raise £750,000 each year to fund Florence Nightingale Hospice services, and the Charity recruits and manages a team of over 300 volunteers who support both the Hospice and the Charity, in our Charity shops and at fundraising events.
