Our Mission

Mission Statement

St Peter & St James Hospice provides expert care to adults living with a life-limiting illness in our community. Our support extends to friends and families too. Our community includes Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Lewes, Uckfield and everywhere in between.

We support people to live and die well, according to what matters most to them. Our mission is to provide the best possible care, in the right place, at the right time, to everyone who needs us. Our workforce is committed to excellence in all they do.

Key Values

Our key values are at the heart of our organisation and underpin everything we do. They define who we are, how we work, what we believe in and stand for.

Compassion – We show everyone empathy, kindness and respect.
Integrity – We do the right thing, no matter how challenging.
Accountability – We take responsibility for our actions and outcomes.
Excellence – We strive to be outstanding and aim to exceed expectations.
Inclusivity – We welcome and respect everyone.

Our 3 year strategy

Our strategic goals for 2022 – 2025:

  • Financial stability
  • Excellent care and support
  • Highly skilled workforce
  • Community recognition
  • Net Zero Emissions

People affected by life-limiting illness are central to everything we do and our strategy is designed to ensure they receive the best possible care, in the right place, at the right time. To achieve this, we need a skilled workforce which is committed to excellence and prepared to deliver care and support to everyone who needs us, not the select few.

We have adopted a culture of continuous improvement, striving for excellence and will remain agile, professional and responsive. We cannot do this without financial stability, clear operating models and effective collaboration with all our stakeholders.

While we focus on our impact in the local community, we must also face the crisis of climate change. As an organisation we have a duty to do what we can to reduce our impact on the environment. To do this we have a goal of net zero emissions by the end of 2030.
