Ashgate Hospicecare

Ashgate Hospicecare provides care, hope and support to people when they need it most; in peaceful and dignified environments where compassion is shown and the highest value is placed on good communication with patients and those most important to them. Last year we cared for 2,256 people; and also their families, who we continue to support for as long as they need us.

We provide our help and support here at our 21 bed Hospice and out in the community, covering the whole of north Derbyshire.

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is to provide specialist palliative care and support to patients and their families, across the whole of north Derbyshire, in a setting which best meets individual needs.
