The inpatient unit also has a relative’s/carers kitchen and dining facilities, a relatives room providing overnight accommodation if required and open and honest supportive care from experienced and knowledgeable staff.

Opening times

  • At St John’s we have an ‘open visiting’ policy for relatives so that you can visit any time of day or night. We have a relatives lounge and kitchen and can accommodate a small number of relatives overnight
  • St John’s Information and Support Centre is open between 8:30am and 4:30pm (except bank holidays)
  • If a health professional has recommended the hospice’s services to you but you are worried about coming, ring us to discuss your concerns and we could arrange a time for you to come and look around
