What the service means to patients and families

Watch this video below on Erika's experience:
“I was able to spend rally good quality time with my mum in those last two weeks, without having to worry about supplies or doctors. We are able to just get on with being together"
“The hospice team were very reassuring. Often my step-mum, Diane, just needed a hug and the nurses were so lovely and caring, listening and helping her through the tough final weeks and days. I’m not sure we could have managed without them.”
