About the Hospice

As a specialist palliative care hospice, we provide multidisciplinary support for patients, families and carers in the following areas:

  • Up to 30 inpatient specialist palliative care beds
  • Outpatient & Wellbeing services for specialist palliative care services
  • Community Support at Home Services
  • Grief & Bereavement Support Services
  • Consultant Led Medical Team

We are a registered charity providing care and treatment for those living with life-limiting illnesses. Whilst we receive funding from NHS Lanarkshire, this only partially covers our running costs.

Continued provision of these services is only made possible by the generosity and assistance of the people of Lanarkshire.

St Andrew’s Hospice became a limited registered charity (OSCR) (Charity No: SC010159) in April 2006, having previously been an unincorporated association, operating under the care of the Religious Sisters of Charity.

We offer care and support to patients and their families tailored to meet their individual needs. Our goal is to provide physical, psychological, social and spiritual care for our patients in a calm, peaceful and welcoming environment. We aim to ensure our patients live as actively as they can, for as long as they can and ensure they have the best quality of life possible. We care for patients with a range of needs including symptom management, rehabilitation as well as end of life care.

  • St Andrew’s Hospice provides inpatient care to people 18 years of age and older
  • We accept referrals from North Lanarkshire (with the exception of Cumbernauld & Kilsyth) and Clydesdale.
  • We provide Outpatient and Wellbeing services to people with advanced, progressive life-limiting illnesses who have associated complex specialist palliative care needs
  • We provide grief and bereavement support and counselling to families, carers and the wider community.

“I always thought a hospice to be a sad lonely place. I couldn’t have been more wrong. The team you have there from housekeeping staff to high management are truly amazing. We always felt welcome there and there was always someone to talk to if we needed them.”
