Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust

Palliative Care

The Specialist Palliative Care Team within the Trust works closely with all other professionals involved in end of life care.

The service includes specialist community support together with inpatient units at The Primrose at the Princess Unit, Princess of Wales Community Hospital Bromsgrove and The Macmillan Unit at Evesham Community Hospital.

Our aim is to offer advice in the management of complex symptoms and offer emotional support to the patient and their family.

“How people die remains in the memory of those who live on”
Dame Cicely Saunders; Founder of the Modern Hospice Movement

Referrals are usually made to our team from other professionals, such as the GP or Hospital Consultant, with the patient’s agreement, but a patient can self-refer. (Self-referrals are usually discussed with the patient’s own Doctor in order that we can have a clear understanding of the current situation.)
