Coronavirus COVID-19 update – Meadow House Hospice
As the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic continues, our key priority remains to ensure that we can continue to care for people living in the boroughs of Ealing and Hounslow, as they approach the end of their life.
The Senior Management Team at Meadow House is taking further steps to protect and reassure our patients, staff, volunteers and visitors. Please strongly consider whether your visit is essential before visiting the hospice.
Given the advice regarding social distancing, Meadow House has decided to cancel all planned fundraising activities for the foreseeable future. We trust that our supporters will understand our position and will continue to support us during this challenging time.

Meadow House Hospice is one of the first NHS hospices in London. We opened our doors in 1987. We continue to provide specialist palliative care to the boroughs of Ealing and Hounslow, recognising the diverse needs of our population.
We have benefited from NHS funding as well as generous donations from our local community. These additional funds let us go beyond the strict NHS funding. We are able to provide an enhanced, caring environment and additional services to patients, and their families and carers.
What Services we offer
Meadow House accommodates an in-patient unit, the day hospice, as well as the community teams and associated health care professionals. These teams work together to provide patients, families and carers with holistic care.
Our Service Aim
We aim to provide flexible specialist palliative care emphasising the importance of supporting, independence and encouraging patients and their families to be closely involved in the decision-making about the care received.
We aim to achieve this by holistic assessment, discussing advance care planning and creating an individualised care plan with our patients.
Who is the Service for?
Meadow House Hospice cares for people who have life limiting or terminal conditions – Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neuron Disease, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, End Stage Cardiac Conditions and Dementia. The majority of our patients have a cancer diagnosis. We aim to show compassion, care, respect and dignity at all times.
Referrals are usually made by a healthcare professional using a referral form (available by contacting the referrals officer). Once received, these are triaged and then contact made with patients or carers usually the next working day depending on the urgency.
