1994; The Education & Training Centre opened in Taunton to offer education and professional development to St. Margaret's staff and other health care professionals across Somerset and neighbouring counties.

2001; The need was identified to provide a greater equity of provision for specialist palliative care in the East of the county. A fundraising effort was therefore, once again, resurrected and an appeals committee formed in order to raise £4.5 million to build a second In-Patient Unit in Yeovil.


2003
; After two years of fundraising, an additional 16-bed In-Patient Unit and Day Care Centre in Yeovil was completed in December and officially opened by Princess Alexandra the following year. The unit was fitted with the most up-to-date specialist facilities and equipment, providing spacious homely and comfortable yet private care, designed to meet the needs of patients and their carers.

2004; A Bereavement Liaison Officer was recruited to provide a lead for bereavement care. The team, most of which are volunteers, now has 27 members staff. However the biggest growth in our services over the years has been within the community. This includes the services of Community Palliative Care Nurse Specialists, domiciliary visits by our clinicians and our “Hospice at Home” service which is provided in partnership with the NHS and Marie Curie Cancer Care.

By now the In-Patient Unit in Taunton had become tired, lacked modern facilities and our service had long out-grown the space available.
