Cynthia Spencer Hospice provides specialist palliative care services for South Northamptonshire, our sister hospice, Cransley Hospice provides similar services for the North of the county.
At Cynthia Spencer Hospice we provide inpatient care, outpatient services, Hospice@Home, lymphoedema service and palliative care clinical nurse specialist service. We have two specialist Consultants in palliative medicine, a team of doctors and specialist nurses working within the Hospice and the community as well as in Northampton General Hospital and Danetre Hospital in Daventry.
Referrals for our Hospice services are usually made via a patient's GP, district nurse or hospital Consultant and nurses.
I heard about the Hospice from my wife who had volunteered for many years and once I joined the team I soon got to work on the Woodland Walk. One lady sent me a card telling me how lovely the daffodils were that we'd planted. Sadly I learned she died just two days later but to know that the work I do made such a difference to her means a great deal
We offer specialist physical, psychological, social and spiritual care to those with life limiting illnesses. Our focus is on quality of life and respecting the uniqueness of each person.
The specialist palliative care service is jointly funded by the Cynthia Spencer Hospice Charity and Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
The cost of running the hospice is over £2.4 million, a large part of which comes from the generous support of local companies and individuals throughout the county.
