Arthur Rank House is an adult hospice offering specialist palliative care to patients over the age of 18. Arthur Rank Hospice Charity works in partnership with the NHS to offer vital hospice services throughout much of Cambridgeshire. Together we support over 1000 patients each year, as well as their family and friends- helping them deal with the challenges presented by cancer and other life limiting illness.
The professionals at Arthur Rank House work closely with patients and their families enabling them to live life to the full to the very end- making the most of the precious time they have left together. The environment is one of care, empathy and professionalism, where time is no object.
The charity is committed to raising over £1 million each year, and is solely responsible for funding the Day Hospice and Hospice at Home service. It also funds vital services such as bereavement counselling and the chaplain, as well as transport for patients and relatives, volunteers-training and expenses, the Tea Bar, Visitors Kitchen, requests from the In-Patient Unit and major refurbishment projects.
The Hospice has been looking after residents of the Ely area for many years, both at the In-patient unit and day therapy in Cambridge and through our Hospice at Home service. Recently an outpatient clinic has been opened at the Princess of Wales Hospital to enable patients to attend medical appointments without the need to travel into Cambridge.
