Conference aims


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. 

We aim for attendees to leave the conference feeling energised, inspired and able to think differently about the challenges they are facing.
