About St. Joseph's Hospice

St. Joseph’s Hospice is the oldest and largest hospice on Merseyside, providing end of life care for patients with a wide range of life-limiting conditions. Our 29-bed Inpatient Unit is located in a beautiful setting within a conservation area and 12 acres of natural woodland in Thornton, Merseyside.

Our professional healthcare teams care for over 200 patients and their families from across Liverpool, Sefton and West Lancashire every year, providing care and support for as long as they need it.

St. Joseph's Hospice is only partially funded by the NHS and so fundraising is a vital part of the hospice's work. In fact, we need to raise £8,750 every day to keep our services running.
