Ten Bed Hospice and Specialist Palliative Care Support Service

Hospices play a vital role in supporting people with incurable illnesses as well as their family and friends. In the Yarmouth and Waveney area there is currently no inpatient hospice and no other plans to provide one, so a key element in patient choice is missing.

At East Coast Hospice we intend to put that right. We are a local, independent charity and our aim is to build an inpatient hospice combined with a day care centre close to the A12 between Gorleston and Lowestoft that will serve all the people of the Great Yarmouth and Waveney area.

Our Vision:

Our vision is to provide an Independent Local Hospice that delivers expert medical care alongside compassion, dignity, love, and peace for those with life limiting conditions .We aim to support patients and their families to live as well as they can for as long as they can and when the time comes; to support a dignified ending to their life.

Our Mission:

To build and provide specialist palliative care inpatient and day care services for the people of Great Yarmouth and Waveney; giving dignity, care, support and choice to those at the end of life and their families.

The hospice will be known as Margaret Chadd House
