Hayward House is a Specialist Palliative Care Unit in the heart of Nottingham’s City Hospital. The unit provides a calming home-from-home environment for more than a 1,000 patients each year, but it urgently needs your help.

Patients with advanced, progressive and terminal illnesses, including those at the end of their life, are cared for around the clock, by a specialist team of doctors, nurses and therapists.

Today, we need your help to make end of life care the very best it can be.
