About Us

160 years of compassion and excellence supporting St. John's Hospice

A Word Of Welcome From The Chairman Of The Board

A Word Of Welcome From The Chairman Of The Board

Our Hospital, founded in 1856, is one of the country’s largest independent charity hospitals and the UK’s premier Catholic hospital.  Our commitment to our patients is in the quality of our care, the range of our services and the quality of our consultants and staff.  They are, we believe, the very best in their profession.  Together we offer a welcome to all to visit us.

Our charitable status comes from our on site St John’s Hospice, which we fund with appeals and surplus from our private healthcare services.  This in-patient, day care and community facility provides care, without charge, to people living within our wide catchment area and their families.

We take great pride in our heritage.  The Catholic ethos which has been our inspiration since the Hospital was founded, assures patients of a commitment to care and compassion in the delivery of their healthcare.  Our aim is the same now as it was over 161 years ago — to provide the highest quality healthcare for all those who seek it.

Sir Mark Allen,

– The Hospital Chairman

"All profits from the Hospital fund St John's Hospice, keeping its vital services running, which provide free care for over 4,000 terminally ill patients and their families each year."
