The Woodlands Hospice Charitable Trust was set up as a direct response to the needs of local people living with cancer. The experiences of General Practitioners, Macmillan nurses and hospital staff identified the need for a facility for the care and support of those with life-threatening illnesses in North Liverpool. The Day Hospice was opened in 1996, the Out-Patient Unit in 2005, and a fifteen bed In-Patient unit in 2009.
Woodlands Hospice Charitable Trust is an independent charity committed to delivering the best possible practice and development of Specialist Palliative Care for people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses with complex needs. It honours people’s right to dignity and respect at whatever stage of their illness, by its aim to improve the quality of life for Hospice attenders and their families.
