Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity commits to raise £1,000,000 each year to fund Florence Nightingale Hospice services, and the Charity recruits and manages a team of over 400 volunteers who support both the Hospice and the Charity.
Florence Nightingale Hospice provides a range of palliative and end-of-life care services to people in Buckinghamshire and parts of Oxfordshire and south Bedfordshire who have life-limiting illnesses such as chronic lung conditions, cancer and neurological conditions. It has an In-Patient Unit with twelve beds in the Hospice, and it supports patients in the home through the Nightingale 24/7 Care and Community Nursing Teams.
In addition, the Day Hospice offers physical, therapeutic and emotional support to people who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness, but who are able to live independently at home. The Hospice also runs the Lymphoedema Clinic and cares for and supports families & friends of patients, through the Bereavement Support Team.
