Hospice Care Week

Hospice Care Week is an annual week of activity to raise the profile of hospice care across the UK. Each year we hold a week of celebration and action, which helps to change people’s perceptions of hospice care.

The sixth Hospice Care week took place between 3 to 9 October 2016 and the theme was ‘Hospice Care is…’. 

This theme aimed to highlight every aspect of the extraordinary care that hospices provide, from the well known to the not often highlighted.
