Our Vision is to:
“Provide compassionate care for all those with life limiting illness”
Hospice Isle of Man Mission is to:
“Give choice, comfort and outstanding quality of care to those needing specialist palliative care, at no cost to patient or their families”
Approximately 200 people on the Isle of Man die of cancer each year. The majority, 95% or so are referred to Hospice at some stage of their illness, often following diagnosis. Currently Hospice needs to raise £3.5m each year in our small island community and fundraising events, PR work and advertising ensures Hospice’s constant presence.
