If you currently use the hospice’s services, or have used them in the past, or have an interest in the charity’s services, it would like to hear from you.
Come along to an open forum evening at the hospice in Carlton Place in the city centre on February 28 from 5pm to 6.15pm.
“Working closely with patients and families, the hospice prides itself on providing person-centred care,” said Gillian Sherwood, director of clinical services.
“Now, as we plan for the future, we want to hear from patients and families with their thoughts and ideas on how we can shape our services as we move ahead.
“At the open forum we will share our vision for the next two years and welcome feedback.”
People attending will learn more about how the hospice’s plan to offer the very highest standard of palliative and end of life care fits into local, national and international frameworks. And how its philosophy that the people it supports are central to decisions about their care.

The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice is moving this summer to a new purpose-built home on a green site in the city’s Bellahouston Park, donated by Glasgow City Council.
This 21st-century hospice will provide state-of-the-art palliative care services. The new home for Glasgow’s Hospice will give it the flexibility to develop and improve services for patients and families, and allow it to look after young patients aged from 16 years old. It is one of the first hospices in Scotland to transition young patients from children’s to adult services.
The hospice provides person-centred and family focused care and support to 1200 new patients and families living with a life-limiting or terminal illness every year across Glasgow, East Renfrewshire, Cambuslang and Rutherglen.
It helps people with a range of terminal and life-limiting conditions, ensuring compassionate care is co-produced with patients and families and only after careful discussion to choose the most appropriate way to look after patients.
