Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care

Phyllis Tuckwell is the only Hospice Care service for adult patients and their families, affected by cancer or other serious progressive illnesses across West Surrey and part of North East Hampshire.

Founded 1979

  • Mission statement

    For over 35 years Phyllis Tuckwell has provided supportive and end of life care to people affected by a terminal illness in West Surrey and North East Hampshire, serving 550,000 residents.

    Every day we support over 250 patients, carers and their families in their own homes, in the community, at the Hospice in Farnham (In-Patient Unit, Day Hospice, Out-Patient appointments and through Patient & Family Support) and now the Beacon Centre in Guildford (Day & Therapy Unit, Out-Patient appointments and through Patient & Family Support).

    The NHS/Government only covers 20% of our costs, which means we rely heavily on the support and generosity of our local community. All our services are free of charge to our patients and their families, but we need to raise over £15,000 a day to offer such an exceptional standard of clinical care and support.

    Our Mission Statement is: To care compassionately for people with a terminal illness, and those closest to them, so that they live their life to the full and their ending is peaceful... Because every day is precious.
