Due to Covid-19 restrictions we have postponed all face to face training until further notice.

To support staff with key skills and essential training for End of Life we are working with Hospice colleagues to support a timetable of training via Zoom. Trainers will be from palliative care experts, including the following hospices: ellenor, Pilgrims, Heart of Kent and supported by colleagues in KCHFT.
