The Hospice UK conference takes place from 6-8 November 2023, returning to the North West at ACC Liverpool, and online.

This year's Conference: Thinking Differently


We’re excited to think differently about the big trends, challenges and opportunities in hospice and end of life care across all four nations of the UK.

Join hundreds of hospice and end of life sector colleagues for a varied agenda packed with discussion, debate, presentations, research and learning. 

Make the Hospice UK annual conference the one event that you and your organisation attend this year.

Why attend?


We know that Hospice and end of life care is at its best when we work together and learn from each other. 

We work hard to connect hospice and end of life professionals through our networks, events and online resources. The National Conference underpins our mission of supporting our member hospices deliver world class end of life care.

Every year, delegates tell us they come away with new ideas, renewed energy and practical advice they can use each day in their work. 

You’ll leave the conference feeling energised, inspired and able to think differently about the challenges you are facing.
