Sue Ryder, Nettlebed
Sue Ryder is national registered charity established in 1953. The hospices care for people with more conditions than any other UK charity through our seven hospices, five neurological centres, and out in the community.
Sue Ryder hospice care is provided for people dying from cancer, heart failure, lung disease and other life-changing conditions. Support is provided to our patients and their loved ones through our hospices and in people’s homes, to help ease physical and emotional pain. The focus is on supporting people to spend their last days in the way they choose. Working seamlessly together, our specialist hospice care teams include doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers, bereavement support and volunteer befrienders, who deliver incredible care to people at the most difficult time of their lives.
Although a national charity, we respond to the local need at our hospices. For over 35 years, our nurses at Sue Ryder Nettlebed Hospice have provided incredible care for people living with an end of life diagnosis from across Oxfordshire, South Buckinghamshire and Berkshire. People stay with us for a few weeks or months, receiving round the clock, person-centred care. Sue Ryder offer a range of support, from inpatient care in our 12-bed hospice to a 7-day community nursing service and day services, which helps people stay at home and provides respite to carers.
To provide this incredible care to the local community, it costs us £3.1 million a year. We receive £800,000 in statutory funding, which means we need to raise £2.3 million to ensure Sue Ryder Nettlebed Hospice stays open.
