About St Oswalds
St Oswald's provides specialist care for local adults, young people and children.
We are situated in Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne and our purpose-built facilities offer a range of flexible services to North East families.
Within our adult service, we offer a day hospice, lymphoedema service, an inpatient unit, complementary therapy service, consultant outpatient clinic and an outreach service.
Adults with life limiting conditions are referred to us for pain and symptom management and end of life care. We care for patients with Cancer, as well as those with end stage neurological, cardiac and respiratory conditions.
Within our Children's Service, we offer specialist short breaks to children with life limiting conditions and their families. Children from 0 - 18 can benefit from our care at St Oswald's. Within the last few months, we've also begun developing a pilot service for young adults, aged 18-25, to enable us to continue to support children in our care who are reaching adulthood and perhaps those who have already left the service
