A special way to remember someone this Christmas

Dedicate a light to the memory of someone you love as part of our ‘Light up a Life’ campaign this Christmas – and make a donation to patient care and support for others. Our special trees will be lit at our Light up a Life event which, due to on-going COVID-19 precautions, will again be shared online this year.

Lymphoedema Service Update

The team seemed to listen to what we had to say and took our opinions on board, it made us feel listened to.

Andrew Wilson

I remember visiting for the first time and was in awe of the place. Dad was relaxed, and all of the staff were so lovely to us. It was like a home, not a hospice.

Leyan Jones

My mum spent the last three weeks of her 97-year life in the hospice. The love, attention and care she received went beyond extraordinary and I will never be able to thank the hospice and its staff enough.

Ian Meade

By the first evening of Mum’s stay, the difference in her was noticeable to us all. When I came to visit, it was clear how well she was being looked after, and the whole family just felt like we’d been scooped up into a massive hug.

Steph Millington

Barnsley Hospice looked after my friend with genuine care and sensitivity. It was such a shock to lose Louise and so comforting to know she was in good place at the end.

Our response to CQC’s overall rating

We were extremely concerned and disappointed to receive this rating from the CQC following their inspection at the hospice and we are working hard to address every issue raised, as quickly as possible and within the time-frame required.

We’d like to reassure patients and families that our ‘caring’ was rated as good by the CQC but we fell short in other areas and robust action is now being taken to address all relevant policies and procedures and drive forward improvement. We will keep you updated on progress.

If anyone has any concerns, please contact our CEO/Chief Nurse Martine Tune via or 01226 244244.
