The new Outpatient Suite at St. Oswald's provides facililities for day treatment, lymphoedma care and complementary therapy, in response to increasing demand for palliative care to patients with life limiting conditions who are able to remain living in their own homes.

The building is purposefully designed to provide an airy, modern and therapeutic ambience, with the patient experience at its centre. Integral with this approach and with its social sustainability of the hospice movement, the project embeds a stronly sustainable approach to design, optimising natural lighting, natural ventilation, low energy use and low carbon emission.
