Sunderland - St Benedict's Hospice

St Benedict's Hospice & Centre for Specialist Palliative Care is the local hospice for the people of Sunderland and District.

Set in beautiful garden grounds in Ryhope, the centre cares for people who are living with a wide range of life-limiting conditions.

Through a selection of services, which includes Day Care; out-patients; in-patient unit; lymphoedema clinic; specialist palliative care nursing in the community; out of hours service; and complementary therapies, St Benedicts has been providing outstanding care to patients and their families for over 30 years.

Care is provided free of charge to those that need it by the NHS through South Tyneside Foundation Trust but all the services are supported by St Benedict's Hospice Charity which raises funds and manages donations received in order to enhance, expand and complement the range of care and facilities available, both at the hospice itself and to those receiving care from the centre in the community.
