Roxburghe House is a specialist palliative care unit in Aberdeen where care concentrates on symptom control for patients with life limiting illness.

The multi-professional clinical team is committed to delivering care that ensures the best quality of life for the patient, to enable each patient to live as full a life as possible within the constraints of their illness and also to give support to carers and families. There is also an Education Unit, which assists in the further training of both medical and nursing staff in palliative care.

Roxburghe House is about living, where staff and Friends alike work together to create an environment of care, compassion and understanding.

Volunteers have a valuable role to play in supporting the work of the unit. Examples are given on our Volunteers page. All volunteers are eligible to become a member of Friends of Roxburghe House Grampian.
