Michael Sobell Hospice provides care, comfort and support for local people facing life limiting illnesses.
The clinical team offers medical, nursing and emotional care along with practical support for patients and their families.
How we do this
Michael Sobell Hospice Charity is dedicated to raising funds for Michael Sobell Hospice.
Harlington Hospice is commissioned by the Hillingdon Clinical Commissioning Group to provide care at Michael Sobell Hospice. In an innovative partnership between the two charities a large proportion of the cost of this is provided by the fundraising activities of Michael Sobell Hospice Charity. The Charity works tirelessly to ensure that enough funds are available to enable Hospice staff to continue delivering specialist end of life care and comfort to local people, their families, friends and carers.
Working together, our aim is that every patient should experience a journey towards the end of their life that is peaceful, comfortable and free from worry and pain. The Hospice is a special place, where patients and families can spend precious time together.
Most patients are referred to the Hospice by their GP, District Nurse, Community Palliative Care Nurse or hospital consultant. If you feel that you or a member of your family could benefit from a referral to the Hospice Inpatient or Day Therapy Units, please talk to your healthcare provider.
- Hospice based Inpatient Unit - 10 beds
- 24 hour Consultant led advice line for the use of health care staff
Our Day Therapy Unit gives people with a life-limiting condition the opportunity to spend an enjoyable day with others in a similar situation, in a friendly and caring environment. (currently closed due to COVID-19)
You can be referred to the Day Therapy Unit for a number of reasons, including:

We also provide a wide range of other services:

With support from Hospice volunteers we also have lots of social activities to help you get to know and build friendships with your fellow Day Therapy Unit users. You’ll meet other people in a similar situation which can support your care and well-being.
