Organiser Education Team, Arthur Rank Hospice Charity

Organiser of Using the McKinley T34 Syringe Pump

Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire who are living with a life-limiting illness.  Our care and services are provided free of charge to patients from our new location at Shelford Bottom, Cambridge and the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech, North Cambridgeshire.

We deliver care to over 1,000 patients each year through our specialist palliative care Inpatient Unit, Day Therapy and Community including Hospice at Home Services, helping our patients and their loved ones to make every moment count.

We would not be able to provide all of these services, without the generosity of our supporters, donors, local businesses, community groups and all those who undertake fundraising activities or who give up their time to volunteer from the local and wider community.  We are grateful for their support and involvement
