About St Gemma's Hospice
About This Shop
St Gemma’s Hospice was opened in 1978 in Moortown, Leeds. It is the largest hospice in West Yorkshire and the fourth largest in England. We provide specialist medical and nursing care for people with life threatening illnesses, predominantly cancer, along with support for their families.
Care is offered to patients and their carers in our In-Patient Unit, through our team of community nurses and via our Day Services, which includes a Day Hospice and Out-Patients department. Families and carers are also supported by the Hospice’s specialist bereavement workers who provide support to all including children and young people.
We welcome and provide care for people from all faiths and none. The staff focus care around the needs of the individual and are respectful of all beliefs, religions and cultures. A hospice is not just a building; it is a philosophy with the emphasis on care, compassion and respect for the dignity of each person as an individual.
The services we provide are free of charge to patients, families and carers.
We would not be able to care for local people with life threatening illnesses without the valuable and ongoing support of the community. The work of our staff is complemented by a large team of local people who volunteer in all areas of the Hospice, as well as in the chain of charity shops.
