Outcomes and results
Leading in your area.
St Margaret’s is rated outstanding by the Care Quality Commission, and every year we take the time to care for approximately 5,000 people.
We provide physical, emotional and spiritual care to patients with a life-limiting illness, their family members and carers, as well as lymphoedema patients.
Our compassion and care extend beyond our patients, reaching across Somerset through our educational activities and partnerships working as well as our network of shops and fundraising events.
St Margaret's has been an integral part of the Somerset community for over four decades, offering compassionate care and support to patients and their families who are facing a terminal illness.
Established as a charitable organisation in 1980, our primary mission has been to provide specialised palliative care, free of charge, to the community.
Presently, our services are available to a population of approximately 520,000 people and we believe that every member of our community deserves dignified and comprehensive care during their final stages of life.
‘Time to care’ is a phrase that has become part of the Hospice’s collective narrative in recent years. In those three words we sum up just what makes St Margaret’s different and special.
Through good quality hospice care, what our 300 staff and near 1,000 volunteers do is take the time to get to know our patients and their loved ones; we take the time to listen to them and hear what’s important to them as they approach the end of their life. We can then take the time to care – tailoring the support we provide to help patients live as well as they can for as long as possible.
We aim to reflect this diversity in everything we do, particularly when attracting and retaining a diverse workforce. We are committed to implementing policies designed to promote equality of opportunity in our employment practice.
