Willow Burn Hospice provides palliative and end of life care to people living in

County Durham with a life-limiting illness and their families. We provide this within the scope of in-patient care, day services, family support and bereavement care and complementary therapies (as part of in-patient and day care service).

Our aim is to relieve physical and emotional distress, control symptoms and to provide care, comfort and compassion at end of life. Our Nurse led team is supported by palliative care consultants, Dr David Oxenham and Annabelle Plyming and two sessional GPs with Specialist Interest – Dr Carole Patterson and Dr Sara Colclough.
