St Christopher's is the world's first modern hospice and was established by Dame Cicely Saunders over 50 years ago. Cicely strongly believed a holistic approach needed be taken and her focus on caring for a patient's physical, spiritual and psychological wellbeing marked a new beginning, not only for the care of the dying but for the practice of medicine as a whole. Her words: "You matter because you are you and you matter until the last moment of your life" still ring true today.
