Foyle Hospice

Who We Are

Foyle Hospice provides ongoing palliative care services for patients with cancer and other life limiting illnesses while supporting their families and loved ones in the North West of Northern Ireland.  Our commitment is to improve the quality of life of patients while extending care and support to their families and loved ones.
 

Our Mission & Vision

Hospice Care is based on a philosophy which recognises the need to treat each person with dignity, respect and compassion irrespective of their cultural or religous background.  
 
Our Vision is that all adults in our local community living with life-limiting illness will have access to the best possible palliative care that is appropriate to their needs.
 

Our Aims Are To:

  • provide the highest levels of support and care to our patients and help them to retain independence and control of as many aspects of their care and life as possible.
  • share truthful information about diagnosis, treatment and prognosis with a patient in a sensitive manner. 
  • support families and loved ones to help them cope during the illness and in bereavement in an attentive and non-intrusive manner. 
  • co-operate and collaborate with other professionals and support agencies, in particular the Primary Health Care Team and Hospitals.
  • make decisions about treatment and care in conjunction with members of a multidisciplinary team and in line with a patient's personal goals and preferences.
  • be an excellent and rewarding place to work.
  • support and value our volunteers.
 

How We Are Funded

It costs £2.3 million to maintain our services.  All our services are free to patients and their families.  We receive less than 19% funding from the Western Health & Social Care Trust. We are dependent on the support of individuals, companies and trusts to maintain our services and to continue to offer them free of charge. The commitment of our 370 strong volunteer community enables us to offer a high level and diverse service.
