Covid-19 is affecting us all but Prospect Hospice remains operational in order to support the increasing number of our community needing end of life support. Here you'll find lots of information about the virus and information and advice that we think will help you at this time.
Prospect Hospice has been providing end of life care to the people of Swindon and north east Wiltshire for over 40 years. Find out more about where we've come from and who we are here.
Find out about the 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, free of charge.
We couldn’t do what we do without considerable support from our local community. Find out all the different ways in which you can support Prospect Hospice, including fundraising, volunteering and purchasing from our shops. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
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.
If you are a patient, family member or from the local healthcare community, and you need fast advice, please call the Single Point of Contact team on 01793 816124 (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm).
Outside of these hours, call 01793 816109 to access our 24 hour advice line.
