Families caring for children with life-limiting or complex medical conditions must seek urgent medical support if their child becomes unwell


As a children’s and young people's hospice, every decision we take is informed and guided by the needs of the children and families we support. In line with the latest advice from Public Health England in mind, we are restricting access to the hospice to only those who are receiving or delivering services to our children, young people and families, or providing essential services.
