About Us

We are Birmingham Hospice.

We believe that anyone with a terminal diagnosis deserves to live well and make the very most of the time that remains.

About Birmingham Hospice

Birmingham St Mary’s and John Taylor Hospices merged in 2021. Now unified under one name, Birmingham Hospice, we care for more people than ever before. Our patients are at the heart of everything we do, and have been throughout our combined 157-year history. From caring for those in our Inpatient Units, to providing vital day services in our Living Well Centres, and supporting families with personalised bereavement counselling, we take care of our community when they need us most.

Who we are

We are caring for almost 1,000 patients on average every day – at our hospice sites, in the community, or in their own homes.

Our vision

We believe in the importance of dying with dignity, in comfort and in a place of your choice.

Our commitment

We want everyone, no matter their age, gender, sexuality, religion or medical condition, to be able to access the care of their choice at the end of life.

Our care

We are the primary provider of hospice care in Birmingham.

Our vision, mission and values

An estimated 100,000 people in the UK who could benefit from palliative care die without receiving it each year. Demand for this expert care continues to rise as people live longer, and with increasingly complex needs.

Our mission to make hospice care available to everyone is vital.

Our People

We couldn’t carry out our vital care without every single one of our dedicated and inspirational colleagues, volunteers and supporters. Read more about our team and how you can join us.
