All-Party Parliamentary Group on Hospice and Palliative Care
The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Hospice and Palliative Care raises awareness and promotes the needs of people living with terminal or life-shortening conditions, and their families and carers, in Parliament; and promotes policies to improve care and support that are person-centred and evidence-based.
The APPG brings together MPs and Peers from across the political spectrum to debate key issues and campaign together to improve palliative and end of life care. Hospice UK provides the secretariat for the Group.
The Group holds regular meetings throughout the year, connecting parliamentarians with a diverse range of organisations and individuals with experience of palliative and end of life care.
