St Giles Hospice is a registered charity offering high-quality specialist care free of charge for people living with diseases which may not be curable as well as providing support for their families and carers.
Services include a team of community-based St Giles clinical nurse specialists, two state of the art in-patient facilities, Day Hospice, Hospice at Home, Bereavement and Family Support, and an internationally renowned Lymphoedema Clinic.
Patients come from across the hospice's catchment area, which ranges from Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Atherstone in the east, to Cannock and Walsall in the west – and from Burton and Uttoxeter in the north, to Sutton Coldfield and Coleshill in the south.
Care is offered at the hospice's centres in Whittington, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall and in patients' own homes across the region.
St Giles spends over £9 million a year providing its specialist services and with little more than a third of this funded by the Government, the registered charity relies heavily on donations and income generation from the local community.
We employ more than 400 people across a broad range of roles – from direct patient care to fundraising and administration as well as support from over 1500 volunteers to provide our services.
