Details from the offical St Peter's Hospice website:
St Peter’s Hospice is Bristol’s only adult hospice caring for local people with life-limiting illnesses. Our commitment is to improve the quality of life of patients while extending care and support to their families and loved ones.
Our mission is to provide care and support for adult patients, families and carers in our community living with life limiting illnesses in order to improve the quality of their living and dying. We do this working closely with other health and social care providers.
Our vision is that St Peter’s Hospice will play a leading role in the development and delivery of the best possible care and support services for adult patients, families, and carers living with life limiting illness in our community.
All of our care is provided free of charge. It costs over £6.5million and the NHS contributes just 22% of our annual running costs. For the rest we are totally reliant on the generosity of the public who support us through any number of different ways including (click to find our more):
Last year we cared for over 2,600 patients and supported over 6,000 family members, including children. Much of this care was provided in patient's own homes.
