The Kirkwood began as a hospice, but today it is a promise: To support the life and legacy of all of those affected by a life limiting illness.

Although the number is increasing, we typically care for around 2,000 people across Kirklees. We help those in our care to live well and to make the most of every single day. We make the complex simple by focussing on what’s important. And we support families and loved ones to live on – and live well.

We’re here for local people across our community whenever and wherever they need us, helping to improve their quality of life – in the ways that matter most to them.

Our patients, their carers and those closest to them all have their own needs, aspirations and expectations. So our support is built around their personal wishes and goals. We offer a wider range of services designed to support patients, carers and family members at every stage of illness.
