The Wisdom Hospice was opened in 1984 and was named after Molly Wisdom who raised money for a hospice in the Medway area, even though she herself was dying of cancer. Following her example the Friends of The Wisdom Hospice were able to raise the rest of the funds to build the Hospice. The Wisdom Hospice is now run by the Palliative Care Services of the Medway Primary Care Trust. The Friends of The Wisdom Hospice make an annual grant to the Medway PCT of 587,000 towards the running costs of the Hospice (approx 1/3). Additional funds have been made available for increased medical and nursing staffing and for a Benefits Advocacy Worker. In addition the Friends fund the hairdressing service and chaplaincy at the Hospice and provide extra equipment and facilities that do not fall within the PCT budget. To provide extra care for patients in their own homes, annual grants are made by the Friends to Crossroads and the Marie Curie Nursing Service. In 2004 a 1.3million refurbishment and extension project at the Hospice, funded by the Friends, was officially opened by TRH The Earl and Countess of Wessex. The Friends of the Wisdom Hospice relies on the support of the community to maintain and extend the services provided.
