From 5 - 11 October, we are marking Hospice Care Week with Hospice UK
This year's theme is This Is What It Takes - highlighting what it takes to provide end of life care and support to patients and families, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This week we will be sharing patient stories and highlighting some of our services which have expanded during this unprecedented time.
Across England, we know that it takes 40,000 dedicated staff, 125,000 volunteers, 2,500 shop windows, 1.1 million home visits per year, 29,000 facemasks used each day, £1.4 billion per year and much more to provide end of life care for all.
Hospice Care Week is a chance to recognise that this is what it takes to provide quality end of life care.
