About Us


What is Lewis-Manning Hospice?

Lewis-Manning Hospice is Poole’s voluntary hospice offering free specialist palliative nursing care to the people of Poole, Bournemouth and the surrounding towns and villages living with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. We are a registered charity, regulated and inspected by the Care Quality Commission.

What we do

The hospice promotes acceptance, hope and peace of mind in a safe and calming environment, helping people live well through their illness and beyond.

It aims to ensure that local people are given access to the support they may need to help them cope with their illness and the changes it may bring.

Lewis-Manning Hospice has a range of services run by its team of palliative care nurses, which includes Day Hospice (specialist nursing care, physiotherapy, creative arts & well-being group), Lymphoedema Clinic, Better Breathing Clinic and Physiotherapy Clinic.

Lewis-Manning Hospice is also developing new services all the time and this includes education, and support groups for families and carers.

How are we funded?

All of the services offered at Lewis-Manning Hospice are free to patients and their carers. The NHS funds less than a quarter of the care we provide.  This means that we need to find the money for the care of 3 out of every 4 patients.  The support of the local community is vital to the continuation of the hospice and the life changing work that is being done here.
