Dougie Mac is more than just a hospice. We are a second home to many patients who need continuous support and care.

We aim to improve the lives of people with any life-limiting illness, providing pain relief and helping them live well before they die.

Our care covers physical needs and looks after emotional, spiritual and social needs. You don’t have to cope alone.

You are invited to join our Patients Forum to shape the future of Dougie Mac

Our Patients Forum, held at the hospice, allows any patient accessing the hospice’s services to highlight where it is succeeding and suggest where improvements could be made.

Our Patients are integral in ensuring that Dougie Mac can continue to grow by feeding back their ideas and opinions during these monthly sessions, so that we can provide the best possible experience for the people we are caring for.

Anyone who is currently receiving or who has received support from Dougie Mac is invited to attend upcoming Patients’ Forums – just contact Pat Hamilton for further details on 01782 344300 or
