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 over 300 images which is on display throughout our building in Newport, Isle of Wight, and, from 6 December, at our sister hospice in West End, Southampton, 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.”

View the collection at our building in Halberry Lane, Newport. We are open seven days a week.
