About St Raphael's Hospice

We are your local hospice

We are an independent charity providing adult palliative and end of life care services for all who need it in Merton and Sutton, free of charge. We care for around 1,000 patients every year and also offer support to families, carers and friends. We are proud to have been at the heart of our community since 1987.

Putting extraordinary into every day

Our expert team is made up of clinicians including doctors, nurses, and their associates, counsellors, therapists and a social worker who all work together to provide care for patients in the Hospice’s 14 bedded In-Patient Unit (IPU). The majority of our patients are at home and our team will work alongside community healthcare professionals such as GPs and District Nurses, offering guidance, specialist support and advice as needs arise.

Our Wellbeing Centre is open to all in our community who are over 18 and have or are closely affected by someone with a progressive life-limiting illness. The Centre offers advisory, therapeutic and social sessions and is a friendly welcoming space.

We also provide counselling and bereavement services to support patients and those important to them through challenging times.

Our aim is to improve the lives of those affected by terminal or life-limiting illnesses, giving them and their carers the confidence to cope and enjoy the best quality of life possible. We believe that hospice care is about life and living alongside death and dying.

Our exceptional hospice care is based on individual needs and the wishes of our patients and those closest to them. Everyone’s needs are different and we want our care to be meaningful to each and every person we look after at the end of their lives.

With the help of our skilled staff and dedicated volunteers, we aim to meet the emotional, spiritual and social needs of our patients, as well as those important to them before and after death.
