The Harriers have partnered with Peace Hospice Care for the 2018 Watford Half Marathon, so please download a Watford Half sponsor form and help raise vital funds for a charity that many from the local community rely upon.
Peace Hospice Care provides free, specialist, care for patients, and their families, facing a life-limiting illness in South West Hertfordshire and the wider area. We provide support at end of life but the majority of our work focuses on supporting those with life-limiting illnesses and helping them to manage their conditions.
Our patients have a range of illnesses including: cancer, neurological conditions, heart failure, organ failure and chronic lung disease.
We care for patients through our:
- Inpatient Unit
- Community Services that bring hospice care to patients’ homes
- Starlight Outpatient Services provides rehabilitative and wellbeing interventions and workshops to support people from the earliest stage of their illness
To access our services, healthcare professionals can refer patients. We also accept self referrals from individuals who we then assess. In 2016, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), an independent regulator of health and social services, awarded us an overall ‘Good’ rating with ‘Outstanding’ for caring. We need £5 million a year to run and deliver our services.
