A message from our Chief Executive
I should like to take this opportunity to welcome you to St Margaret of Scotland Hospice. I hope your time with us will be as near to being at home as possible. We try to create an atmosphere of warm, comfortable and pleasant surroundings. Should you require any help or assistance, I do regular rounds throughout the Hospice several times per day and will be delighted to help in any way I can.
St Margaret of Scotland Hospice – The oldest and largest Hospice in Scotland
Since our doors opened in 1950, St Margaret of Scotland Hospice has touched the lives of thousands of patients with advanced life-limiting illness and older people with complex medical and nursing needs, their families and friends.
At the forefront of care
In recent years, the Hospice has received unparalleled praise from Healthcare Improvement Scotland. During an unannounced inspection in 2012, we scored the maximum ‘excellent’ rating in every category assessed – an unprecedented achievement for a Scottish Hospice. We then repeated the feat in 2014 with another unannounced inspection, proving ahead of this, our 65th anniversary year, that our passion and commitment to offering the very best of treatment to patients and their loved ones remains as strong as ever.
Compassion is our vocation
Statistics and accolades do not come close to painting a full picture of the personal and compassionate service our expert staff provide to all those in need of care. For everyone who works here, compassion is a vocation. In addition to our main facility, situated in colourful, landscaped grounds in Clydebank, near Glasgow, we offer a wide range of services to the local and wider community – including the Edwina Bradley Day Hospice, Out Patient Facilities, Community Specialist Palliative Care and Counselling Services.
We don’t do adequate, we strive for perfection
