St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth is an independent charity providing specialist advice and support to people with progressive life-limiting illnesses in Plymouth, South West Devon and East Cornwall. We believe that everyone deserves quality end of life care, no matter where.
We work with our community, in partnership with others, to achieve dignity, comfort and choice for people affected by life-limiting illnesses through delivering and influencing exceptional care.
Professionalism, Respect, Compassion, Integrity. Our values are at the core of all our services. They inspire us and drive us, to ensure we provide the best possible care to as many local people as we can reach; living and dying with a terminal illness.
We need your support
