City Hospice is the major provider of specialist home-based palliative care for Cardiff. All of our services are provided free of charge. We offer a number of services at our Hospice Centre, Ty Hosbis based in Whitchurch Hospital Grounds, however much of our work takes place in our patients’ homes.

Our clinical team are palliative medical specialists and can offer the latest advice on medication, pain and symptom control as well as treatment options, giving our patients the best possible information on the options for their individual circumstances and symptoms. This can mean the difference between being able to manage their symptoms and staying in their own homes or having to go into hospital or hospice.

At City Hospice, we provide all our services free of charge and offer a number of clinics and drop in sessions at our Hospice Centre in Whitchurch. However, most of our work takes place in patients’ home.

Palliative care aims to treat or manage pain and other physical symptoms.  It will also help with any psychological, social or spiritual needs. Palliative care includes caring for people who are near the end of life.

The goal of palliative care is to help the patient and everyone affected by their illness to achieve the best quality of life. People can receive palliative care alongside other treatments such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy.


Referral to our services is usually arranged by your GP, hospital doctor, district nurse, care manager or social worker. Occasionally we receive self-referrals from patients but in all cases we need permission from your GP.
