Durham - St. Cuthbert's Hospice

We provide specialist medical and nursing care for people with life limiting conditions from across North Durham.

The Hospice is based in the historic Park House in Merryoaks, close to the centre of Durham. Patients and relatives are welcome to enjoy the five acres of beautiful grounds, and the views across the Durham countryside.

Our team of highly qualified and trained staff and volunteers work together to provide individual, high quality care in a peaceful environment, and to provide care and support for relatives and carers.

We provide:

  • An In-Patient Unit offering 24 hour care.
  • A Day Hospice offering advice, support and activities.
  • Treatments including physiotherapy, occupational therapy and a lymphoedema clinic.
  • Community support.
  • Bereavement care and support to relatives.

The services at St Cuthbert’s are provided free of charge. We receive some funding from County Durham NHS, but we must raise a further £1.2 million each year through fundraising events and voluntary donations, in order to meet the annual running costs.
