Primrose Hospice is an independent charity, offering free care, advice and support to patients living with life limiting illnesses and their families, living in North East Worcestershire. It currently costs over £1.75 million per year to run all the hospice services, with just 14.6% of our funding coming from the NHS.
The Primrose Hospice are honoured to be able to support patients with life limited illnesses and their families, providing them with the care and support they need during difficult times.
Each year, it supports almost 1,000 people living in North East Worcestershire. All its services are provided free of charge and are aimed at helping patients ‘Live Well’ and ensure they have choices regarding their care.
Primrose cares for people with compassion, kindness, dignity and respect, in its Day Hospice and through our nurse led Clinics. It supports families, including children during a person’s illness and into bereavement.
Primrose believe it still has a way to go, as too many people in our community are not receiving the care they want or need at the end of their life.
