Loss, love, and sheep


Earlier this year, Cat’s dad was cared for by Martlets and spent his final days on our inpatient ward. Cat was supported by our bereavement counselling service, and Shaun the Sheep.

Colourful knitted jumpers by Sindy

Celebrating Sindy’s baa-rilliant jumpers


Martlets supporter, Sindy, who’s 75, has donated colourful jumpers to our shops for the past five years. In the run up to our Shaun the Sheep art trail we wanted to say a special thank you and celebrate her woolly wonderful knits.

Karen’s Story


Karen and her parents were all diagnosed with terminal cancer within a four-month period. It was a devastating time for the family, but since then Martlets has supported Karen and helped her maintain her mobility and independence. 

Our CQC Rating

Martlets’ last CQC inspection report was published in February 2016 prior to the rebuilding and refurbishment of our hospice, therefore our CQC report shows as ‘archived’ on the CQC website. Our 2016 CQC report can be found here.

We moved back to our new Hospice building at Wayfield Avenue in November 2023 following a CQC site inspection where our hospice was declared compliant against all CQC standards. Our services have not been inspected since we moved to our new building.
