For the last three years, St David’s Hospice has aspired to opening more beds in North West Wales, bridging the gap in inpatient end of life care services across Anglesey, Gwynedd and Conwy.
The four-bed inpatient unit, which utilises a redundant ward of the community hospital, now provides the local people of Anglesey, respite and end of life care for those living with life-limiting illnesses, as well as providing support for many of their loved ones.
Led by our Matron and Medical Director, the specialist palliative care team consists of St David’s Hospice nurses, medical team and health care support workers, who will provide 24-hour care, 365 days a year.
Each single bedded-room is modern and fully equipped for comfort, dignity and privacy. Some rooms offer en-suite facilities and sofa beds, accommodating patients who may need to have somebody staying with them at night, plus there is a family room for quiet times.
Working in partnership with Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, the Anglesey Hospice is independent of the NHS, and the clinical team will be funded by St David’s Hospice, through charitable donations and the support of the local community. The Health Board has provided the space for the hospice as well as the support services including catering, maintenance, and IT. There will also be a close working relationship between the hospice team and local Health Board services and GPs.

All bedrooms overlook the calming coastal landscape of Penrhos or the courtyard gardens and when weather permits, the doors open to allow the patients and their families to spend time on the patio area, taking in the fresh air and picturesque scenery.
