Cransley Hospice

Cransley Hospice

Cransley Hospice provides hospice and palliative care services for the population of North Northamptonshire. It is also the base for the community Macmillan nurses, who work in close partnership with local GPs and District Nurses as well as Marie Curie nurses. The team of specialist nurses, doctors and therapists based within the Hospice provide a comprehensive service of care to terminally ill patients, be they in the Hospice itself, the local hospitals or in their own homes.

Lakelands Hospice

Lakelands Hospice

Lakelands Hospice provides respite day care facilities for adults in North Northamptonshire, South Leicestershire and Rutland. Since opening in 2001, the Hospice has helped over 2000 families in the area and continues to grow in order to meet the great need for respite day care.

The Hospice relies entirely on voluntary donations and support from the community to remain open. In 2009 Lakelands needs to raise in excess of £350,000 to keep its doors open.

Their goal is to improve the quality of life of patients and families living with life-limiting illnesses, including cancer and heart failure.
