What we do
Prospect Hospice supports a community of more than 300,000 people in Swindon, Marlborough and north Wiltshire, and the villages of Lechlade and Fairford in Gloucestershire. In 2016-17 Prospect Hospice cared for and supported almost 6,600 people, as patients, carers and family members, through a range of services developed to bring care, comfort and confidence at life’s most difficult time. For patients, there are teams of nurses, doctors and therapists, bringing care at the hospice in Wroughton, at the Wellbeing Centre in Marlborough, in their own homes and care homes and through a palliative care team based at the Great Western Hospital. Carers and family members also access services designed to help their coping when a loved one has accessed our care. Information on Prospect Hospice’s services, all of which are provided free of charge, can be found here.
Increasingly we work in close partnership with other care-focused organisations, and specifically with local health and social care professionals, with the shared aim of bringing the best possible care to people in their final weeks, months and years.
Prospect Hospice is a registered charity. Last year it cost more than £8m to provide the care and raise the funds to provide our care our patients and their families depend on each year. We receive less than 30 per cent of our income from statutory organisations such as the NHS – the rest we raise ourselves. Find out more about the many ways you can support Prospect Hospice here.
Since 1980 Prospect Hospice has provided the only dedicated end-of-life care service for people living in our community – bringing care, comfort and confidence, around the clock, every day of the year.
