Birmingham St Mary’s is a lead provider of expert adult palliative care services, and our vision is to ensure that the best hospice care is available for everyone across the Birmingham and Sandwell communities, wherever and whenever they need it.

To achieve this, we must offer high quality services, whilst continuously growing our provision of care to support more people in need. The projects that we are currently raising funds for will do exactly this. In addition, they will help us to significantly enhance the quality of care we provide to the community, which in turn will improve the lives of those we support.
