Isabel Hospice provide services free throughout eastern Hertfordshire. They offer a complete service through our team of Community Clinical Nurse Specialists, Day Care Services across our catchment area including satellite services in Thorley, Cheshunt and two in Welwyn Garden City, Hospice at Home, Family Support Service, a 16 bed In-patient Hospice and a Bereavement Service. A fully trained team of volunteers supports the specialist medical staff in providing a warm, caring environment for patients and their families.

Isabel Hospice was founded in 1982 by a number of dedicated people inspired by Isabel Last who herself had cancer.

It was registered as a charity in 1983 and works throughout the eastern Herts area covered by Broxbourne Borough Council, East Herts District Council and Welwyn Hatfield Council.

The philosophy of the Hospice has always been to affirm the uniqueness of the individual and to focus on the highest possible quality of life for each patient in our care.

Isabel Hospice is an independent body and is supported mainly by donations from the public. All care given by the Hospice is free to our patients.

The Hospice has its own team of Community based Nurse Specialists, an In-Patient Hospice, a Day Hospice, 2 satellite Day Hospices and a Family Support Team for adults and children facing loss.

All Areas are supported by trained, caring and dedicated volunteers.

Isabel Hospice works closely with the Local Health Authority, NHS Trusts, Primary Health Care Teams and District Councils.
