About The Prince of Wales Hospice
The Prince of Wales Hospice has been providing care to people with a life-limiting illness since 1989. Our services are available to any adult from the Five Towns area of West Yorkshire.
The Hospice provides care completely free of charge, round the clock, 365 days a year.
We aim to help families in the most difficult times, through day services, inpatient care and outpatient services. Each year we help nearly 1,000 local people, including patients with cancer, COPD or Motor Neurone Disease.
We don’t just ease physical symptoms like pain, but emotional and spiritual difficulties too. And the majority of patients who stay with us return home after their symptoms have been helped.
Our care also extends to the carers and families of our patients, who often need us just as much. As a healthcare service, we are regularly inspected by the Care Quality Commission.
We receive a grant from the NHS each year which covers about a third of our costs. For the remaining £2m, we rely on donations and fundraising from people in our community – people like you. Our registered charity is overseen by a volunteer Board of Trustees.
