Who we serve - St Luke's Hospice is a small hospice situated in Winsford which cares for people living in the mid and south Cheshire area. The hospice offers a warm and supportive environment where specialist staff attend all patients.
The hospice caters for a variety of individual needs, and these include:

A Day Hospice offering specialist palliative care for up to fifteen patients a day.
A Complementary Therapy Clinic operates three times a week on a Monday and Wednesday (from 10am to 3pm) and on a Thursday (from 2.30pm to 8.30pm) - offering a variety of short courses and individual therapy treatments to individuals with cancer as well as supportive care to carers.
