The Prince of Wales Hospice cares for and supports patients with life-limiting illness and their families.

We like to think that we are an integral part of the ‘Five Towns’ community, offering round-the-clock care 365 days a year.

We help over 1700 local people of all ages each year. We don’t just treat patients with cancer either. We deliver optimal care with comfort and dignity to patients with a wide range of life-limiting illnesses with the majority of our patients returning home after their symptoms have been managed.

The Hospice offers a variety of services to help families through difficult times. We have an in-care unit, a day therapy suite and offer support to carers.

We do all we can do – and we can do a lot. 

All of our care is free of charge, but it is not free to provide. Our care costs us £2.6 million pounds every year, but only around one-third of this is received from the NHS.  This means that two out of three patients are cared for by the funds raised through our charity shops and the donations that we receive.
