Hospice Care Week 2019
We’re supporting Hospice UK along with other local hospices this Hospice Care Week (7-13 October).
Hospice Care Week is a chance for us to reflect on the difference hospice care makes to people’s lives and to thank everyone who provides help, support and care to patients and their families every year.
This year the theme is ‘This Is What It Takes’ and will look at the less obvious and less visible staff and volunteers that make hospice care happen as well as materials and equipment that’s needed. It will also look at all the sources of funding needed to pay for this - shops, donations and coffee mornings as well as Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) contracts, grants and support from local business and charitable organisations.
According to Hospice UK:
There are more than 200 hospices across the UK providing inpatient and home support for people and their families. It takes 40,000 staff, and more than
125,000 volunteers to provide the care they need (Hospice UK website 2019).
