What we do

Our work supports the development of hospice care in the UK. By supporting hospice professionals, championing the voice of hospice care and promoting clinical excellence, we help hospice care providers to deliver the highest quality of care to people with life-limiting or terminal conditions and their families.

Hospice nurses

We support the breadth, dynamism and flexibility of modern hospice care by influencing government and decision makers, improving quality of care through the sharing of good practice, and providing resources, education and training, and grant programmes.

We champion hospice care
