Message from our Chairman

Every Thursday evening, vast numbers of people go outside to express their profound appreciation for the frontline staff of the NHS and other workers providing essential services.

During this crisis, nursing staff of the Rosemary Foundation have quietly continued to look after some of the most vulnerable people in our community. They have done so without fuss, and at times with uncertain supplies of vital personal protection equipment.

By continuing to care for people who need it most, they are behaving in a way that will surprise no-one who knows them. They are ensuring that their patients can be looked after where they wish to be – at home. And they are helping to lift the burden on the hard-pressed NHS by continuing to care for people outside of hospital.

When we all express our appreciation on Thursday evenings, let’s show our nursing staff how much we also appreciate their selfless devotion to their patients.

Chris Wilton
Chairman, Board of Trustees, The Rosemary Foundation


The Rosemary Foundation is a Charity providing a ‘Hospice at Home’ service in Petersfield and the surrounding towns and villages. It is intended to help patients in the latter stage of life threatening conditions.

This service offers practical help, nursing care, emotional and counselling support, together with day and night sitting service and trained nurses available 24 hours a day. Care continues through the first year of bereavement.

The Rosemary Foundation receives no statutory funding but provides a valuable service at no cost to the patient or their family.

The services of the Rosemary Foundation are free of all charge to patients and carers. See how we work.
