End of life care

Tina Swani, CEO of St Mary’s Hospice

What are society’s changing needs when it comes to end of life care? What should be put in place to meet those needs? What options are we likely to have when it comes to our own end of life care?  Come and have your say.

Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice provides care and support to 400 people living across Birmingham and Sandwell with life-limiting illness and to the people that matter most to them. Care is taken beyond the Hospice itself, offering personalised support, in people’s homes or in their local community. The aim is to help people live well with their illness, right up to the end of life, and to be there for families, carers and loved ones.
