National Hospice Care Week 2020
A message from Hospice UK
Do you know what it takes to provide end of life care?
There are more than 200 hospices across the UK that work with and within local communities to support individuals and families with end of life care.
With the world dealing with the effects of COVID-19, expert end of life care is more important than ever. We know that it takes 40,000 dedicated staff, 125,000 volunteers, 29,000 face masks used each day, 1.1 million home visits, 2,500 shop windows, £1.4 billion per year, and much more to provide end of life care for all. Hospice Care Week is a chance to recognise and celebrate this.
This is What it Takes
During this special week dedicated to Hospice Care, we will be highlighting 'what it takes' to deliver our Hospice at Home and Family/Bereavement Support services to the communities of North Northumberland.
