What we do, our history and our vision.

Who we are

Founded in 1976, Sobell House was one of the earliest NHS hospices to be established, following in the footsteps of Dame Cicely Saunders, considered by many to be the founder of the modern hospice movement in UK. Since then, we have been providing specialist palliative care to patients and their families at home, in the Oxford hospitals, and in our purpose-built hospice on the Churchill Hospital site. We are part of the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust and closely linked to the University of Oxford.

We have a team of specialist doctors, nurses, therapists, pharmacists, social workers, chaplains, support staff, and volunteers. They help deliver palliative care, specialist advice, and support to patients, their families and close friends, and professional colleagues in the community and hospitals. Education, training and research are integral to our work.

Who we are

Care delivered to our patients and their families is free at the point of delivery. We receive NHS funding, but could not provide our service without the support of individuals and organisations who contribute through Sobell House Hospice Charity.
