East Lancashire Hospice

First Contact Team

We want to give our patients choices - do they want to be cared for in the hospice or in their own home? To be able to offer this choice we are extending our Hospice at Home service to the communities of Hyndburn and the Ribble Valley and will continue to provide the service in Blackburn with Darwen
