Day Hospice services are an important part of End of Life Care and should support patients to live as well as possible in their last months of life. We are passionate about great hospice care for the people of Sandwell and West Birmingham and want services to be the best they can be. A vital part of improving services is listening to, and acting upon the voice of patients and carers.
