Caring for local people since 1996...
A registered charity, Woodlands Hospice is dedicated to providing hospice care for the people of North Liverpool, South Sefton and Kirkby in Knowsley.
The Woodlands Hospice Charitable Trust was orignally 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.
In 2022 an additional new service was introduced called The Intergrated Mersey Palliative Care Team (IMPaCT). This service was introduced to improve the referral process for palliative care within North Merseyside.

Philosophy of care
Hospice care is 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 patients and their families. This helps them to live actively and be as independent as possible. This support often extends to patients' carers, family and close friends.
Our care is holistic, which means that as well as taking care of patients' physical needs their emotional, social and spiritual needs are also looked after.
Everyone in our community living with life-limiting illnesses to have access to the best care and support they require at a time that is right for them and their loved ones.
