The Prince of Wales Hospice aims to improve the quality of life for people with a life-limiting illness. From our modern and bright building in Pontefract, we provide specialist care and support which addresses the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual difficulties often faced by people with a life-limiting diagnosis.
Patients can be referred to stay at the hospice for around the clock care , or visit just one day a week . Those with the specific swelling condition lymphodema, may attend our specialist clinic on an appointment basis. We assess all new patients to decide what care and support they need, and continue to assess this throughout their illness. And our care extends not just to patients, but also to their carers and families – who often need us just as much.
