St Cuthbert's Hospice

Located on Claypath, and stocks an array of donated goods to appeal to the city’s student population, tourists visiting throughout the year, and to the local community who live in the city, or travel in to the city to shop. Clothing, footwear, jewellery and accessories, along with home ware, china, books, with a selection of children’s toys/games.

St Cuthbert’s Hospice, based at Merryoaks, Neville’s Cross, is a registered charity. It was recently classified as “Outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission. Whilst some of the running costs are met by the NHS through local Commissioning Groups, a further £1.3million pounds per year has to be raised by the hospice to run the services, with much of the money coming from local events and fundraising activities. St Cuthbert’s Hospice opened in 1988 and provides care for people with life limiting conditions, as well as giving support to their families. The Day Hospice looks after up to fifteen patients four days a week, offering physiotherapy, complementary therapies, advice on symptom control and social activities.

The In Patient Unit, which opened in 2006 following a public appeal, allows the Hospice to offer 24 hour care for people living in Durham, Chester le Street and the surrounding areas.
