How we help

St Catherine’s cares for patients and families across Chorley, Preston and South Ribble who are affected by life-shortening conditions like cancer, motor neurone disease and heart failure.

Our specialised care is here to help people enjoy the best possible quality of life, to the end of life. We work with patients and their loved ones at the hospice and in their own homes to help them achieve what is important to them in the time they have.

We work creatively and collaboratively with other organisations, businesses, charities and local people to meet the needs of patients and their loved ones.

Our values are caring, compassionate and committed.
