In 2000 we introduced a Complementary Therapy Clinic for Day Hospice patients.
During the years 2002 and 2006 The Lymphoedema Clinic was introduced. St Luke’s entered into a partnership with the local Primary Care Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support. Furthermore, we launched our Midnight Walk which has since raised millions of pounds.
Between 2007 and 2009 we established our first research programme with the University of Liverpool and the University of Lancaster. The Hospice received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, which was presented during a Royal Visit by the Duke of Gloucester. Our staff were commissioned to work with the local Macmillan Cancer Centre. The Hospice received a grant to lead project work on end of life care in Dementia. We also purchased our Luke double decker bus thanks to Bentley, who also gave Luke a makeover in 2014!
