Butterwick Hospice Care serves the whole of the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees and the South Durham Dales of Weardale and Teesdale and also the Sedgefield area.

Butterwick House Hospice is the local hospice for babies, children and young adults from Teesside, County Durham, North Yorkshire and Wearside.

Butterwick provides holistic care for each individual patient and their families. Butterwick’s dedicated Doctors, nurses, complementary therapists and family support workers go the extra mile every single day to ensure every moment counts in the lives of patients and their loved ones.

Caring for a person diagnosed with a complex progressive illness is a challenging vocation but one which our care team feel privileged to do.

During the Butterwick’s 33 year history thousands of people have experienced the Butterwick’s way of caring for someone, borne out of the tragic loss experienced by the Founder of the hospice, Mary Butterwick. Mary’s way was always one of compassion and love, caring for everyone who suffered.

Since Mary left her beloved hospice in our care, we have worked hard every day to follow in her formidable and wonderful footsteps. Thankfully, during all 33 years of Butterwick Hospices existence, local people from all over the region have worked hard alongside us. Supporting Butterwick as volunteers and fundraisers, helping to ensure there is always that extra special mixture of compassionate expert care and loving support available to local people of all ages, all backgrounds, all beliefs.

As the Hospice team, we are very grateful for your support, for every little or big thing you do to help your fellow human being through the work of Butterwick Hospice. We think you are amazing and we look forward to working alongside you for the benefit of everyone in all the communities Butterwick Hospice serves, for the next 33 years.

We all experience hard days but knowing what we do and what you do makes a positive difference to those we support and knowing you are all there, in the background supporting every step we take, means we can carry on with our task of making every day special for those local people we care for, because for our patients and their loved ones every moment really does count.
