Our Mission Statement is clear – To provide a specialist palliative care service for patients with specific life-limiting illness living within the catchment area of North East Wales Trust and the border areas and to support their families in a caring environment. This will be undertaken by a specialist trained multi-disciplinary team who will provide symptom control, assessment, terminal care, and on-going emotional support for relatives and carers, bereavement support, education and information.
The hospice is an independent and voluntary health care provider registered under the ‘Private and Voluntary Health care (Wales) Regulations 2002’ with Health Care Inspectorate Wales (HIW) to provide hospice care.
As a minimum the hospice is inspected by Health Care Inspectorate Wales twice a year, with at least one announced inspection and one unannounced inspection.
