If you would like to visit, please arrange with your care team, who will make sure you are met and introduced to the hospice by showing you around.

If you begin treatment as an inpatient, day patient, or outpatient, we always make sure that your family can come and spend time with you.

Family members, carers and friends can visit Glasgow's Hospice at any time, though there may be times, such as meal times, or when doctors and nurses are carrying out care, when we may ask your visitors to wait.

During these times they may visit our cafe or dining room while we look after you.

Children are always welcome under the supervision of their parent or guardian.

We have a play area available, but it may be helpful to bring crayons and paper, or a favourite book or toy, to help keep them occupied and busy.

Pet visitors

Pets are welcome too, please get in touch with us before visiting, so we can arrange this for you.

Food & drink

Barga Cree Café is our on-site café. It’s open Monday to Sunday, from 8am to 7pm. Each day there’s two delicious specials and a soup of the day. 

The café is open to patients and their families, staff and the general public. There’s a wonderful view of our gardens to soak up while enjoying a coffee or your lunch. The middle of the café is open and public, with smaller, more private pods along each side of the café.

The café, generously staffed throughout the day by Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice volunteers, provides teas, coffees, meals, sandwiches and light snacks, with our vending machines offering drinks and snack 24 hours a day.
