At Cynthia Spencer Hospice we provide inpatient care, outpatient services, Wellbeing services, Hospice@Home, lymphoedema service and palliative care clinical nurse specialist service. We have specialist Consultants in palliative medicine, a team of doctors and specialist nurses working within the Hospice and the community as well as in Northampton General Hospital and Danetre Hospital in Daventry.
Referrals for our Hospice services are usually made via a patient's GP, district nurse or hospital Consultant and nurses.
I heard about the Hospice from my wife who had volunteered for many years and once I joined the team I soon got to work on the Woodland Walk. One lady sent me a card telling me how lovely the daffodils were that we'd planted. Sadly I learned she died just two days later but to know that the work I do made such a difference to her means a great deal
We offer specialist physical, psychological, social and spiritual care to those with life limiting illnesses. Our focus is on quality of life and respecting the uniqueness of each person.
The specialist palliative care service is jointly funded by the Cynthia Spencer Hospice Charity, Cransley Hospice Trust and the Northamptonshire Integrated Care Board, who together commission Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to provide our clinical services.
The cost of running the hospice services across Northamptonshire is over £6.5 million, part of which comes from the generous support of local companies and individuals throughout the county.
