Philosophy of Care
The aim of Wirral Hospice St John's is to warmly welcome people with progressive illness, which has failed to respond to curative treatment, into the quiet calm of a highly professional caring atmosphere, which comforts always both them and those who are important to them.

Care Quality Commission
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the regulator of health and social care in England. All healthcare providers have a legal responsibility to ensure they are meeting all the essential standards of quality and safety. Wirral Hospice is registered with the CQC. The CQC performs unannounced inspections at the Hospice to ensure compliance with these essential standards and to gain the views of our patients, carers, families, staff and volunteers. These inspections are conducted by the CQC's Inspecting Officers as part of their routine reviews of healthcare establishments.
The Inspectors review information and arrangements we have in place to better understand the care, treatment and support that is available to our patients, carers and families, and to ensure that the systems we have in place support the choices available to those we care for. They also observe how patients, carers and families were being cared for and talk to patients, carers and staff and to other people who use our services.
Since registering, the CQC have performed annual unannounced inspections at Wirral Hospice St John’s and we are very proud to announce that standards have been met upon all occasions with no conditions. This means that people who use the services of Wirral Hospice are experiencing the outcomes relating to all the quality and safety essential standards.

Our Community of Hospice Heroes
Within our hospice community is a hidden team of Hospice Heroes - the patients and their loved families and friends, the staff, the community fundraisers, the volunteers, and the supporters from businesses, schools and local service organisations and societies - to mention a few.
We are asking everyone who is involved with the Hospice or has an interest in it, small or large, to take an active part in our community and to let us know what's going on in their lives and what they are celebrating.
See how in our Hospice Heroes page.
