Find out about the wide range of end-of-life care services that we offer to patients and their families. These are designed to provide compassionate, personalised support during every stage of a life-limiting illness, in every kind of care setting, to anyone who needs it.
We couldn’t manage without considerable support from our local community. Learn about all the different ways in which you can help Prospect Hospice, for example by taking part in fundraising events, playing our lottery, or remembering us in your will. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
Prospect Hospice is a leading provider of education and training for end-of-life care in Swindon and north-east Wiltshire. We provide education and development opportunities, all of which aim to encourage learning and build confidence in end-of-life care and support.
Volunteers are central to our work, bringing valuable experience and enthusiasm to a wide variety of roles. If you’d like to help Prospect Hospice by giving some of your time, you’ll find all the information you need here, including current opportunities, volunteer profiles and the benefits of volunteering for us.
The staff at Prospect Hospice have one shared aim: to provide the very best end-of-life care to people in our community who really need it. If you’re interested in joining our team, check out our current vacancies and find out how we can support you in your career development.
A significant amount of Prospect Hospice’s income is raised through our charity shops. The success of our retail operation depends on the generous support of the local community (donating and buying goods), and the commitment of our managers and volunteers. Find out more here.
Our palliative care nurses work with their colleagues at the GWH to improve the comfort of patients and support the management of difficult symptoms. We are proud to have achieved a CQC (Care Quality Commission) rating of ‘good’ for our work at the GWH.
The nurses also work with patients and their families to enable a smooth, timely return home, and to ensure that they are confident about coping when they get there. Sometimes, of course, a return home is neither possible nor wanted, and in some circumstances our team at the hospital will suggest a transfer to the hospice in Wroughton.
If a patient’s care needs are longer term, the Prospect nurses will work with GWH staff to ensure that alternative arrangements are in place. For patients admitted to the GWH who do not live in our area of care, we will liaise closely with their local services to manage their ongoing needs.
