Prince & Princess Of Wales Hospice, (The)
The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice has been delivering gold standard specialist palliative care for over 37 years to the people of Glasgow. We are a compassionate place of care for people who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness and provide a hospice that offers comfort and peace of mind, where those who care, treat patients and their families with kindness, respect and dignity, and support not only our patients but their families and carers as well. Every year we care for over 1,200 patients and families for whom we must ensure the highest possible quality of care. Our hospice offers five distinct areas of care to patients:
• Inpatient unit
• Day care and outpatient services
• A multidisciplinary team for inpatients, day care and outpatients.
• Acute hospital team
• A family support team who offer psychological support, art, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, counselling, bereavement and spiritual support to patients, families and carers.
By providing this, in turn we support their families and carers. Our staff care for the person, not just the illness and each patient is shown respect and dignity to the end of their life - all of our care is delivered free of charge. In addition to this there are around 1400 attendances at our day care and outpatient services every year.
We deliver state-of-the-art specialist palliative care and we have the flexibility to develop and improve services for our patients and families. This flexibility allows us to look after younger patients aged from 16 years old. We continually reach out and promote the hospice to a variety of people who may previously, unintentionally, not had access to specialist palliative care. The hospice strives to deliver services to all irrespective of their age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.
Now, we are very much looking to improve and increase our current services allowing for more people to be cared for by the hospice through outpatient services, day patient care, acute crisis, medication reviews, respite, and end of life care and to provide support to those patients and their families and carers. Our specialist team are able to keep an excellent continuation of care for our patients which makes them feel at ease and comfortable.
