UPCOMING EVENT: Fire Walk – Face your fear & raise money for Lewis-Manning Hospice Care


The symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) may be more severe in people with weakened immune systems, older people and those with long term conditions. We care for people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, so it is important that we take all reasonable steps to protect the wellbeing of those using our services, as well as those working and volunteering for Lewis-Manning Hospice Care. 

We are carefully monitoring the changing situation and reviewing the guidelines issued by Public Health England. We are endeavouring to keep our staff and volunteers up to date with the relevant information and would advise everyone to continue to visit the Government website.

Our Senior Management Team are meeting regularly to consider necessary precautionary steps to minimise the risk of infection with Coronavirus (COVID-19) for patients, families, carers, staff and volunteers.

Lymphoedema Clinic

The Lymphoedema Clinic at Lewis-Manning Hospice Care provides treatment and support to people who are dealing with Lymphoedema, which is a condition that causes swelling in the body’s tissues. It can affect any part of the body, but typically occurs in the arms or legs.

Better Breathing Clinic

Breathlessness caused by life-limiting illness can be frightening. The Better Breathing Clinic at Lewis-Manning Hospice Care helps people with respiratory conditions, such as COPD and lung cancer, manage their illness better by supporting them with techniques to combat symptoms associated with breathlessness.

Day Hospice

Our Day Hospice’s purpose is to help people who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting condition, offering practical care and social support for our patients. It has a calm, relaxing and homely atmosphere and is a safe place for people to come and meet others in similar circumstances.

You can Make a difference
