St Luke's Hospice looks after people in Harrow and Brent whose illnesses are no longer curable, helping them to achieve the best possible quality of life. St Luke's aims to care for people in the setting of their choice, whether it is in their own homes, supported by our Community and Hospice at Home teams, in the Woodgrange Centre, or in our In Patient Unit. Our End of Life Care Single Point of Access telephone service, provides patients with a number that they can phone day or night to access advice, support and emergency care.
