End of Life Care Support Forums
We meet on the 1st Wednesday of every month, at the hospice, from 1.30 – 3.30pm. No need to book and these are free sessions.
These forums offer peer support and networking through the media of discussion and education for all those working directly with people living with life limiting conditions.
