We would like to express our thanks and appreciation for all the wonderful hard work that you, your nursing team and support team have done, particularly over the past year. Your kindness, loyalty and compassion to all your patients is outstanding.
We have recently experienced the wonderful care you gave to our grandson James Woollard, who was only 31, but sadly died in December. A special thank-you to you all for taking care of him during his final weeks.
Michael & Maureen
Keep up the great work!
Thank you all so much for your hard work, dedication & love.
Hello everyone who works and volunteers at the Hospice. You do an amazing job often under difficult circumstances, both professional and emotional. My wife passed away here a year ago and the support she had in her final days was so good for her and comforting for me and our daughter.
And now, I have a cancer diagnosis and the outreach help that I have is of great support.
So, I think of you all every day and thank you for that ‘ extra mile’ that you work for us all.
my wife Joan passed away 5 years ago & the care & attention we both received at the hospice was unbelievable & I'm sure that this is still being given to everyone by your present staff. Thanks once again
In memory of my husband Michael David Edwards on his 84th birthday which would have been on 25th April 2021. Love from his wife and family
What a great team you all are.
What would we do without you all.
We send you our best wishes.
Thank you so much to you all for your sacrifice and dedication to your patients. Nurses, chefs, cleaners and all unseen staff - you are all appreciated.
I will always remember the loving care you showed my husband, Ivan, my daughter Glynis, and my son Keith-Ivan. The warmth shows through in everything you do.
I know you do a wonderful job caring for so many people who need you. Thanks for all you do.
More than 12 years ago your incredible nurses looked after our lovely daughter during her final months. We will never forget the wonderful care you gave to her and the support you gave to all the family.
We will never forget the wonderful, loving care that you gave our darling Jo (Jenner) . You are all very special people - Thank you more than we can say !!
My Mum spent her last days with you in August 2018. My sister and I really appreciated the care my Mum received before and after admission. She had gone through a very unsettling difficult time in her last few months. It was so wonderful that she could be in such a safe, tranquil and caring place for her last few days. Thank you so much. You do such an amazing job.
thank you all so much for making the last days of my dear sister Jessica Smart (died 16th March 2020) so bearable. She left us just before the lockdown but sadly we could not attend the funeral.
To say you are all doing and have done a fantastic job is probably the grossest understatement I could make. I am a trustee of a care home and experience first hand the dedication, skills and sheer hard work that all those who care for other people provide. Thank you.
Thanks to all the staff and Doctors who made my husbands journey with Pancreatic Cancer bearable for both him and my family. David liked to be in control of what happened to him. The gentleman who saw David at home. David was asked and what do you think after every sentence? This was so important David could agree or disagree, but importantly for David this meant he was in control!. Our family thank you for the devoted care David received in his last days. Love and care was there in abundance.
Just 3 words
You are amazing
Very best wishes to all
It is now 9 years since my late wife spent time with you but I fondly remember the loving care and dedication of your staff. Thank you so much.
No matter what role you're in - paid or volunteer, frontline or support function - you're all contributing towards looking after our community members and their loved ones in your own special way.
The outpour of love and messages on this board is a beautiful snapshot of how much of a difference you make to people's lives as well as reminder of why we do what we do.
Thank you all for being so caring, dedicated and passionate.
The staff at St Peter & St James are truly incredible. They forever hold a place in our hearts for the incredible care they gave to Phil in his last weeks, and the comfort and guidance they gave us too. I honestly could not do the job that they do and we are forever grateful to them. They give so much to families at the saddest of times. Thank you for all that you do. ❤️
Thank you for all the wonderful care and support you provide to people when they need it most.
Thank you especially during these challenging times - caring hands and hearts of gold. Best wishes to you all.
With huge grateful thanks for all you do for folk at the very worst time of their lives - patients and families.
I think St Peter & St James and all its nursing staff are wonderful. My husband Derek passed away in St Peters in 2006, the care and love which he received was amazing, and the support to us as a family.
Thank you for always being there to love and care for us all.
Keep doing the amazing job that you are all doing. Love will always win.
Thanks to all your staff. Keep up the great work that you do.
As someone who had the privilege and skills to be about to care for my own mother through a terminal illness, I can understand the need for and benefit of the loving, skilled care a hospice gives. At my request, my GP kindly prescribed according to a hospice regime - which I had to research! In those days hospice regimes were not widely known and she would otherwise have been prescribed Bromptons' Cocktail. The result was that I 'had my Mum' until the end. She was even able to correct the abysmal spelling and discuss the contents of the coursework I was doing at the time. As she had nursed my father through a terminal illness many years before, it was fitting she had similar love and care.
Well done! Keep up the good work.
Having been involved with St P & St J since around 1980 in a variety of ways, Founder member of the Friends of St P & St J, volunteers, Trustee etc, I am very aware of the devotion of yourself and your colleagues and I send a message of gratitude and support to all of you.
We would like to send you very many thanks, and to say we are MOST grateful for pouring out your lives in serving our community. Your work in serving others is never in vain. No wonder the Lord Jesus said - 'It is more blessed to give than to receive'.
To die well is to be given a gift. It only happens when there are human beings who go the extra mile, daily, and whose loving kindness relieves the suffering of the dying person and their loved ones. Its been so hard for us all lately: but please know, you are in our thoughts, and you are valued, more than words can say.
To all the wonderful nurses and staff you are doing a fantastic job in very difficult times, my grandfather was with you until he passed back in 1998 and we as a family have never forgotten the care and love you showed for us all back then, you do an incredible job and we really do appreciate all you do for those you look after. Best wishes the Voyce family (Ernest Voyce died feb 1998) xx
A thank you to all your staff and volunteers. We are so grateful that you are there and provide the services that you do.
With grateful thanks for your dedication and courage.
Thank you to all staff for caring for people who need your expertise.
My best wishes to such a beautiful set of people.
Just to say a huge thank you for all your work and loving care you give to everybody at a very difficult time. I have known a number of people who have had the benefit of your wonderful end of life care and all the support and help you have given to their loved ones. Thank you so much.
A very big thank you for the dedication and commitment you have all shown over the past year to those in need of care and your visits were a lifeline to them. Many of you made your own sacrifices. We are proud of you. You are a credit to our country.
To help with the running costs of the Hospice and to recognise the very special care given by all your staff and especially the nurses during the last difficult year
We are grateful that we are able to support the wonderful work carried out by your amazing nurses and other members of staff. Zena & John.
Everyone really appreciates the love, skill and thought that all of you give to the people that you care for. Very well done.
Happy Easter and God bless you for all the wonderful, tireless, caring work you do. You, and your colleagues, make every day special for someone, especially in these lockdown days. A smile brings hope and warmth - and makes the sun shine!
Thank you for your tireless work and the companionship you give to the people in your care (and their families).
You have incredible impact on peoples’ lives, and even more so in these difficult times.
Thank you so much.
Appreciation of your efforts. Would be hard to quantify being so great.
My grateful thanks for your care of my sister, Peggie Kirby (died Nov 2008), and my brother-in-law, Neville Kirby (died June 2009).
Thank you to all the staff for their kindness to all their patients, including my husband, Deryck Cook, and my son-in-law Stephen Sandow, in their last days. It is greatly appreciated.
My lovely Dad, Humphrey Jenkins and all our family benefitted from your outstanding care, during his last days in June 2019.
This pandemic year must have been so difficult and frightening for you all and I would like to send my love and best wishes to you all once again in these difficult times. Special thanks to Faye and Kezia who were with us at the end and kept me calm. You are all amazing people and very much appreciated 🥰
Congratulations to all the nursing team and support staff for all of your dedicated care that you have given. You are doing a very worthwhile job and are a credit to the community that you serve.
Our local community is truly blessed to have the wonderful team of nurses at St Peter & St James for their loving care and support given to the patients and their families is, I know, really appreciated.
Thanks to all dedicated nurses working all hours since March 2020. With all their hard work and devotion, care for their patients, families, loved ones and friends. We are really, really grateful.
Thank you for the amazing work you do and the care you gave my best friend Christine Hancock many years ago.
With my good wishes for your great work
Thank you very much for all your hard work!
The nurses deserve a big 'thank you' for all the care given to patients, but ALL the staff should be thanked for continuously working through these difficult times.
To all the amazing staff, Thank you for the wonderful work you do. The care you provided my Daddy, Chris Wilson, meant so much. Thank you for supporting me and my family.
Thanks to all the nursing team for your dedication, courage and hard work caring for very sick people in our community. The past 12 months must have been the most difficult you have experienced and you all have our admiration for your continued dedication. Let us hope and pray that better times for all will be with us soon.

Well done to all of you for keeping going in such very difficult circumstances, to give such valuable care to people at the darkest time of their lives. Things will not improve for you any time soon as there will be many poor souls who have been neglected whilst the NHS have concentrated on Covid-19 over the past year and will soon be needing your excellent care. So please know that you are not forgotten and are greatly appreciated for doing such important work in our community. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.
I am more than ever grateful during these difficult times for the wonderful compassionate end of life care given to my husband two years ago. This enabled him to die with dignity and without pain accompanied by those who loved him . We were so lucky . A heartfelt thank you.
Thank you for all the love and support you give to patients and their families. It makes the Hospice a special place. Keep up the excellent work.
Heartfelt thanks for all the care you give to us all, when in need of help. May god bless you and keep you all safe always.
You are SUPERHEROES. Forget about the Avengers, YOU're the real deal. Much love!
Thank you so much for all your hard work over the last year (and long before that). You really are appreciated.
It is now five years since my husband died in St Peter & St James Hospice. I remember with gratitude the great support, capability and kindness shown by Sam Horley when she visited John and I at home. One of her colleagues managed his admission to the Hospice within one hour when a crisis came at home, and I was able to stay with him until he died, nine days later. Thank you for your care.
Bless you all. What would we do without you.
Always remembering the wonderful care given to my husband Tim Swayne nearly 20 years ago.
Just a brief but very sincere note to thank ALL staff at the Hospice for the amazing love and support you show to all your patients and their families. With love from Mies and Graham Campling.
Dear Trina, thank you for your letter and this is my brief reply to say how priceless you and your colleagues care and support to all who come to you in such great need - Thank you.
I have been a volunteer worker at the Hospice for 30 years or so and I am well aware of the wonderful work you, the nurses team and support staff, carry on at our wonderful Hospice. Sorry I am unable to continue to help you (I am 94 years old) other than by donation but shall never forget you. George xx
Keep going it has been a difficult year for everyone. Compassion for others is a huge gift. A smile is free.
I have long been an admirer of the wonderful, kind and cheerful way you go about your splendid work, all of you, and it is, I know, much appreciated around the area. Bless you all.
I think you do the most amazing and wonderful job. Well done, keep going.
Thank you to all staff and volunteers at St Peter & St James Hospice!
A big thank you to all the nursing staff dedicated in caring for the special people in your care. Your love and support must bring endless comfort to those in need.
For many years I have had contact with St Peter and St James Hospice. In fact I had a very close friend who ended her life in the Hospice and I remember well the care and attention she received from everyone in the Hospice. I admire all of the doctors and nurses who are so kind to your patients.
A BIG THANK YOU
I am writing to say a BIG THANK YOU, for all the caring and wonderful work you have done for the people of Sussex during this last, especially difficult, twelve months and of course, at all other times. May you continue to keep well yourselves, and hopefully may 2021 become easier and less of a strain on each of you. Thank you again for being there for all of us.
You are all wonderful, caring and compassionate people doing a special job. Not only the nurses, but everyone at the hospice, staff and volunteers, keep up your amazing work. I can't wait to get back to volunteering in Fundraising.

The nurses' dedication to their profession and their tireless devotion to and loving care of patients are almost beyond words. God bless you all.
Thank you Ruth for all the care both to Chris who sadly passed and myself. It was a very traumatic ,emotional time and you was just amazing . Thank you 💜 x
In memory of Chris Goldfinch who you cared and look after during his last days . No amount of words can express how amazing and lovely you all were.
I will never forget the wonderful care you gave my husband, Clive Broadrib who died 4 January 2012.
Thank you for all you are giving in very difficult circumstances.
Special people like yourselves deserve a special big THANK YOU. God bless you all.
Thanks to all of you working at the hospice. You do a wonderful work.
Thank you for all the wonderful work carried out by such dedicated staff at these very difficult times.
A very big THANK YOU for all your hard work and support for those who need it, as you did my mother. God bless you all.
My memories of Nov 09 when you took care of my husband Ken Duquemin will stay with me always, it was only 4 days, you were all so caring, and made it all so peaceful for us to say our goodbyes. Only wish I was in the position to donate more.
I lost my beloved husband last year and will never forget your kindness in his last months. I also know many other people who have benefitted from your care and compassion. God bless you all.
Ten years ago my wife Chris died at St PJ on 3rd Feb 2011, my 80th birthday, at about 2.30am (when I was born; very personal!). Later on I was able to assist as a Befriender. On my 90th birthday, I had a new experience, Covid and lockdown. These experiences have shown me how important your work is. Illness is a kind of lockdown. You are the people who enter in to the lives of those suffering and take in comfort and love. Never doubt how important you really are.
What a truly amazing, dedicated bunch of people you are. Your tireless, selfless attitude and genuine desire to care for sick people and their family members make you all very special 😊
Thank you for all your kindness and dedication which is very much appreciated especially in such strange and difficult times. Bless you.
To good for words
An extremely very well done to all of you for the past and to your future efforts. So needed, thank you :)
It is wonderful to know that hospices is somewhere that helps those that cannot put up with cancer operations in hospitals not knowing if they would ever get better and come out and see better surroundings to end their lives.
Thank you for everything!
It is a year ago on the 29th that my beloved Eddie passed away, and I still remember and appreciate the wonderful care and support that we as a family received from you. Thank you.
I cannot imagine what you face on a daily basis. Your vocation, your dedication, your Love in doing what you do, it’s impossible to find the words but Thank You sounds so minuscule but it comes with so much Love and Admiration, humbled at what your working day consists of. My cousins daughter Louise Raby said Goodbye there, 21 years ago when she was only 32. She said she felt safe with you. Thank you X❤️
