Together, we celebrate and amplify life.

We are about celebrating and amplifying life, enabling people to live well for as long as possible. We create moments of joy and compassion both inside and outside of our hospice and work to ensure that each of our patients and their families are supported through every aspect of their journey.

As well as our Inpatient Unit and Wellbeing Centre located in St John’s Wood, we work out in the community, in people’s homes, providing care to more than 4,000 people across North London each year.

St John & St Elizabeth Hospital

We are incredibly grateful to be supported by the charitable St John & St Elizabeth Hospital. The hospital, which is affectionately known as John & Lizzie’s in the local community, provides high-quality private care to patients in the heart of St John’s Wood.

As a registered charity, any surplus from the hospital helps to fund our services. Our Inpatient and Wellbeing Centre are also located within the hospital and in addition to their financial support, all x-rays, pathology, pharmacy and Lymphoedema services are delivered on-site. This enables us to provide a level of care that could not happen in most other hospices.
