About Us

Proudly serving the community of East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire since 1987, we provide complex, specialist palliative and end-of-life care for people with a life-limiting condition, aged 16 years and over, as well as vital support for their families.  We employ more than 350 dedicated and highly experienced staff who, with the support of over 950 volunteers, provided outstanding care to 2,378 people in 2022/23.

Treating everyone with kindness, compassion and respect, we provide a safe and caring environment for those facing a life-limiting diagnosis. We are committed to delivering care that is agile and responsive so that we give patients and their loved ones choices about the care they receive, providing the best clinical and therapeutic support within our Hospice and in their homes.

Alongside our Inpatient and Hospice at Home Services, our patients and their families can access a range of supportive outpatient activities and wellbeing therapies within our Paul Bevan Wellbeing Centre, including counselling and bereavement support, complementary therapies, physiotherapy and lymphoedema services.

Our services are free of charge to all those in our community who need access to our vital services, but this is only made possible through the charitable support and generosity of the community we serve. We receive a financial contribution towards our operating costs funded by NHS England and other statutory bodies, and it currently costs more than £49,000 each day to fund our services and support all those who need our care.

On 11 October 2021 Thames Hospice was rated as ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission, following an inspection of its services.
