About Us

Woking Hospice was opened in December 1996 to provide palliative care and support for patients and their families living in central Surrey. The Hospice is situated in Hill View Road on the edge of Woking town. Sam Beare Hospice based within Weybridge Hospital, re-opened on August 1st 2006 under the management of Woking Hospice and provides palliative care and support to the residents of North Surrey

Hospice care is based on the belief that each person is more than their illness, and that each of us has unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs. Woking & Sam Beare Hospices responds to the needs of each individual, helping people achieve the best possible quality of life.

Care for all

This highly personal, holistic approach to care takes time, skill and experience from a multi-professional team. We care for people in the hospice, in their homes and in nursing homes.

Both Hospices are separate registered charities with joint running costs of £8 million per year. We make no charge for our services – all patient care is entirely free, and we rely on donations and other fundraising activities to fund our work.
