St Margaret’s is an independent hospice providing free specialist palliative care to local people with terminal or life-limiting illnesses. It is one of the largest hospices in the UK and has an annual turnover of £12m.  We offer a range of services  in the local community and in both of our two 12-bed in-patient units in Yeovil and Taunton in Somerset. Each unit has a day hospice centre where our specialist teams provide rehabilitation, breathlessness management, occupational therapy, specialist lymphoedema treatment and complementary therapies to patients and their carers.  We also provide support for anyone bereaved by the death of someone who has received our care.
