How we plan to help more people.

In the past three decades Saint Michael’s has supported thousands of local people and their families make the most of their time together. Year on year, as Saint Michael’s has continued to help more people, so the needs of our community has grown. 

Today many more people are  living longer with complex conditions which means unprecedented demand for end of life care services. On top of this 1 in 4 people are still not getting the care they need at this time in their lives. And for certain groups in our society this problem is much greater than others.

Our response to these challenges is to continue to develop our services in the coming decade, plans which, with your support, we will be able to make reality.

Over the next three years:

1.    We will help more people affected by terminal illness to live life to the full

We will do this by developing our outreach and outpatient services so we can reach more people at home. This complements the inpatient care services we already offer, should people need them.   

2.    We will ensure more people with illnesses other than cancer get the care they need

It is widely accepted that people with a terminal conditions other than cancer often miss out on getting the end of life care when they need it. We are committed to extending our expertise to support more people living with illness, such heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), dementia, end stage liver disease and motor neurone disease.

3.    We will support more people from under-represented groups by breaking down the barriers that stop them from accessing care

We believe everyone should get care that is personalised and responsive to their individual needs, regardless of their age, ethnic background, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or social circumstances.  Over the next three years we will be taking action on inequality, helping more local people to get support that is right for them.
