Arthur Rank Hospice supports people in Cambridgeshire living with an advanced serious illness or a life-limiting condition and those who need end-of-life care.

We care for more than 4,000 patients each year at our Hospice in Cambridge, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients’ own homes via the Arthur Rank Community Team. This care supports people to improve their quality of life and fulfil their end of their life choices.

Our outstanding care is provided free of charge to patients and their families.

It will cost £8.66 million this financial year to operate our services, of which £4.68 million is budgeted from our contracts with the NHS and the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
We are extremely grateful to our local community for the dedication, commitment and generosity they show in supporting us to raise the remaining £3.98 million.
