Your Experience survey

If you have used our Hospice's services, please consider taking some time to inform us of your experience.

Emotional and wellbeing support

St Nicholas Hospice Care can offer practical help, companionship, spiritual and pastoral care, as well as psychological services to support those faced with dying, caring and grief.
Practical help and companionship

We understand that when you are living with dying the world doesn’t stop so our Hospice Neighbours may be able to help by:

  • Visiting for a cup of tea, offering companionship and a listening ear
  • Providing practical support
  • Helping to stay connected to your friends, family and the community
  • Directing you to important support services which may help

You can begin a conversation about receiving support from our Hospice Neighbours without formally being referred to hospice services. For more information please call 01284 719638 (monitored answerphone) Monday-Friday or email

Spiritual, religious and pastoral care

The Spiritual care and chaplaincy team is committed to supporting spiritual, religious and pastoral needs both in the hospice building and throughout the communities we serve.

The team offers support and a listening ear as well as arranging remembrance services and offering sacramental support when requested and appropriate.

The team can help with practical issues such as planning funerals, officiating at funerals, and liaising with other faith ministers.
