St Anne’s Hospice is a 10-bed in-patient unit in Malpas, Newport. The Hospice provides care and support for adults in Gwent who have a life-limiting illness.
Recently, the services provided at St Anne’s Hospice were transferred to St David’s Hospice Care.
St Anne’s Hospice is now a key part of St David’s specialist palliative care package, resulting in a more seamless and holistic provision of care for the people of Gwent and the surrounding area.
Bringing St Anne’s Hospice under the management of St David’s Hospice Care will strengthen and facilitate joined-up working across palliative care services in Gwent. It will allow for the provision of in-patient care alongside St David’s long-established hospice-at-home and specialist community service.
St David’s is wholly committed to ‘bringing care home’ and the provision of in-patient care is another way in which we are delivering this. People with a life-limiting illness often require short-term in-patient care.
The facility at St Anne’s will allow patients who access St David’s services to receive in-patient care if they need it, meaning that they don’t need to spend time in hospital and can return home to die, if that is their wish.
