The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice provides access to high-quality palliative care for all, irrespective of age, gender, faith, race or ethnicity.
This includes addressing the health inequalities and accessibility issues experienced by many people who are in need of our palliative care services.
Our widening access programme cultivates and fosters links with minority communities in an effort to raise awareness of the hospice.
We have a dedicated cultural liaison officer, Majabeen Ali, who has been able to take palliative care right to the heart of Glasgow’s multicultural communities, to improve access and uptake of hospice services.
She works with groups and organisations in the community, including Awaz FM, Scotland's Asian radio station, with a cumulative reach of 200,000 people per week.
We believe culturally competent healthcare is not just an added extra, it is integral to the healthcare that we deliver.
