In 2016, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) rated Princess Alice Hospice as “Outstanding” in all five of its key measures: Safe, Effective, Caring, Responsive to people’s needs and Well-led.
We are the first, and currently the only, hospice in England to have achieved such a high rating from the CQC. The exceptional results follow unannounced inspections which included in-depth interviews with staff and volunteers working at all levels and areas in the Hospice and detailed scrutiny of policies and processes.
The inspectors also spoke with people that used our services and family members before deciding on their rating and publishing their report.
Care for families when they need it most
Princess Alice Hospice provides a comprehensive range of services that respond to the individual needs of patients and their families, so that they can live life to the full, create memories, share special moments and when the time comes, support them through, before and after the death of a loved one.
