Welcome to Hospice Care Week 2017

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.

We are hospice care: 8-14 October 2018

‘We are hospice care’ is an opportunity to show the many faces of hospice care and to share their inspiring stories. From nurses to volunteers, chefs to chaplains, corporate partners to carers, Hospice Care Week is about celebrating everyone involved in providing and supporting hospice care.
