Palliative care

Most people are unaware of what palliative care is until they need it. Palliative care is a specialised area of healthcare that focuses on preventing the suffering of patients.

Hospice UK

Hospice UK acts as a central source of information on hospices and hospice care. It supports organisations as they strive to grow and improve end-of-life care.

National Council for Palliative Care
