Hospice Information Afternoon

Hospice Information Afternoons offer people the opportunity to see our facilities at first hand and gain an understanding of how the hospice was founded to where we are now, plus find out more about the services that are available. Most Hospice Information Afternoon groups comprise a diverse range of professionals and volunteers, connected by their interest in palliative care and who work in a Health & Social Care setting.
