    • Treating every person and every day as special. Ensuring that each individual person knows they matter

    • Providing high quality clinical and social support utilising the best of evidence based practice. By maintaining its independence Lewis-Manning is able to choose to provide the best quality, and most appropriate range of supportive therapies
    • Raising awareness of what living with a life-limiting illness means, through education and provision of information to the patient, their carers and the community as a whole
    • Minimising anxiety and fear by accepting death as part of life and thereby enabling patients and their families to live in the moment and plan for their death
    • Providing a range of services which enable individuals to live their lives to the full. Helping to control pain, help manage symptoms and adapt to change
