This year's conference


We know that hospices are facing some quite extraordinary challenges:   

> The cost of living crisis continues to place hospice finances under extreme pressure  

> It is becoming increasingly hard to recruit and retain our workforce.  

> An ageing population is increasing pressure on our teams.  

As hospice trustees, chairs and CEOs, developing your leadership, financial skills and governance knowledge are crucial to guiding your hospice through these difficulties.

Clinical & HR Leads Conference: Hospice Career Pathways ...The roads less travelled

"As a fairly new Hospice trustee I found it great to have a conference specifically aimed at hospice trustees."

"It is so very helpful to learn from others and to hear from peers and experts."
