Wakefield Hospice

Our Care

Wakefield Hospice is a purpose-built specialist palliative care unit that opened in April 1990 providing 8 single ensuite bedrooms and 2 four bed ward areas, a Day Therapy Unit, bereavement support and education.

Over the years the Day Care Unit developed initially into a Day Therapy Unit and ultimately into a Drop-In Centre providing therapies, information and care for patients, carers and bereaved families.

Who we are

Some of our Community Volunteers
From those early beginnings, and as a result of the appeal that went out to the people of Wakefield in 1982, the Hospice developed into what it is today, a sixteen bed specialist unit serving the people of Wakefield.
