Establish hospice care as a solution to the future challenges in palliative and end of life care

St Joseph's Hospice nurse

In 2015-2016 we:

  • Raised the profile of hospice care across all four UK nations in the run up to the national elections, and increased the chances of hospice care remaining a prominent issue.
  • Launched a new report on the scale and reach of hospice care in Scotland.
  • Ensured hospices are better placed to bid for contracts and access NHS funding by highlighting around 160 NHS contracting opportunities.
  • Provoked, challenged and stimulated around 800 delegates from multi-disciplines in hospices across the UK through the 2015 conference: ‘The art and science of hospice care’.
