Professionals & Education

Booking Information

The education both assists staff to give up to date quality care to patients and families, and raises awareness of the issues surrounding specialist palliative care.

Who attends?

We provide education to the whole range of staff involved in the care of people with life-limiting illness and bereavement. The people who attend our events and study days come from:

  • Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Care homes
  • The community
  • Social Services
  • Other hospices

What if I need to cancel?

If you need to cancel your place, please let us know in writing (by letter or email) at least 28 days before the event for a refund (note that all cancellations are subject to a £5 administration fee). If you cancel with less than 28 days' notice then we reserve the right to charge in full, though in such cases we would encourage you to send a colleague in your place.

What if an event is cancelled?
