East Lancashire Hospice

We don't just care for cancer

It surprises many people to know that we don't just care for patients with cancer. Around 40% of the patients we currently care for have conditions other than cancer.

Our trained nurses are experienced in dealing with many conditions and their symptoms and are always on hand to offer advice to help our patients, whatever may be troubling them.

Whether a patient has a stay on inpatients, is cared for at home or comes to the hospice each week, they say the hospice helps them live the best way they can with their illness. Don't take our word for it, read some of our patients' stories below:
