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.

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.
Nurses from Prospect Hospice were on hand yesterday at Tesco’s store on Ocotal Way to raise awareness of the signs of lymphoedema and where they can get support if they, or someone they know, might have the condition.
A pop-up stand run by two of our nurses who lead Prospect Hospice’s Lymphoedema Support team, was organised as part of the national Lymphoedema Awareness Week, from where they offered advice about the signs of lymphoedema and how it can be managed, and also where there is help available.
Lymphoedema is a condition where parts of the body – often limbs – become swollen and damaged by excessive lymph fluid and while it is sometimes a side-effect of cancer or its treatment, it is not a condition exclusively caused by it. For more information about Lymphoedema Awareness Week, please visit https://thebls.com/pages/law
We are very grateful to Tesco for allowing us to have the stall so that people were able to talk to us and learn more about lymphoedema.
