St Wilfrid's Hospice (Eastbourne)
Our mission is reaching out to transform end of life care for the people of Eastbourne, Seaford, Hailsham, Uckfield, Heathfield and all the points in between.
St Wilfrid’s Hospice was opened in 1982 in Mill Gap Road in Eastbourne when outpatients visited once a week for tea. In 1983 the hospice accepted its first inpatients and in 2013 it moved to the purpose-built building on Broadwater Way, equipped with a 20-bed Inpatient Unit and Wellbeing Centre.
We provide specialist care for people with any progressive, advanced life-limiting illness. Referrals are made by the patient’s GP or other healthcare professionals and care is delivered by a team that includes consultants in palliative medicine, specialist nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, counsellors and social workers.
