About hospice care
Hospice care changes lives. A quarter of a million people are cared for by hospices in the UK each year, either in a hospice or in their own home. In this section you can find out more about what services are available, who provides them, who can receive hospice care and how to access it.
At the end of life high quality care should be available equally to everyone, no matter who you are, where you live or what your condition is. This should be provided by all the health and social care professionals you meet, and be extended to the people you love.
