Come and see our unique collection of portraits celebrating Mountbatten patients, their families, staff, volunteers, and supporters.

Earlier this year, we invited our Mountbatten family to be part of ‘Mountbatten and Me’, an exhibition of expression portraits by photographer Julian Winslow to mark our 45th anniversary.

The collection of images which is on display in the Hazel Centre and inpatient unit in our building in West End, Southampton, and at our sister hospice in Newport, Isle of Wight, asked, “What does Mountbatten mean to you?”

We were honoured that those who participated shared their stories with us.

Sometimes those stories were serious and sad. Often, they were hilarious, fun, and full of achievement. The portraits reflect all these experiences to create an honest portrayal of what living, dying, remembering mean to us as we live and support people through death, dying, and bereavement.

“Mountbatten is the people who use our services, the families we support, and our staff, volunteers, and supporters who make our work possible,” said Nigel Hartley, Mountbatten CEO.

“This exhibition is a tribute to everyone who is part of our Mountbatten family, and we felt it a fitting way to celebrate 45 years of hospice care across our Southampton and Isle of Wight communities.”
