Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice
Phyllis Tuckwell is the only Hospice Care service for adult patients, and their families, across the whole of West Surrey and part of North East Hampshire, in the Hospice, at the Beacon Centre, in patients’ own homes and in the community.
For many patients, when a cure is not possible, hospice care helps manage pain and improves the quality of life for both the patient and their family.
Seeking care through Phyllis Tuckwell isn’t about giving up hope or hastening death, but rather a way to get the most appropriate care in the last phase of life.
