Primrose Hospice is an independent charity, offering support and advice to patients living with life limiting illnesses and their families in the North Worcestershire area.
Our Day Hospice at St Godwalds Road is open 4 days a week to patients. We provide a range of services, which are detailed in the 'Our Services' area of our website.
We also contribute to palliative care for in-patients at the Princess of Wales Community Hospital in Bromsgrove,known as ‘Primrose at the Princess', which is run by Worcestershire Health and Care Trust.
The Hospice could not function without our dedicated team of volunteers, who offer their time in a variety of areas. For more information, see our volunteering page
As an independent charity, we rely on donations and fundraising events by individuals and businesses in order to maintain and develop our high standards of care. We need to raise over £1.6 million per year in order to provide our services for free.
Further information can be found on News and Events.
