What care would you or could you expect at the end of life? And why should we all be talking about this more? Join us for a public lecture exploring compassion, community and hospice care.

Chaired by broadcaster and commentator Lesley Riddoch, the evening of discussion will highlight some of challenges and innovations in providing end of life care. There will be an opportunity to hear from our panel of experts and to get involved in the discussion.

Our panel includes: Leading nurse expert in end of life care, Sandra Campbell, who has pioneered innovation and championed greater openness about death and dying; Bereavement Consultant, John Birrell who has worked locally and across Scotland to improve access to information and support for bereavement; Fiona Donnelly, Clinical Manager at HMP Glenochil and Gail Allan, Macmillan Palliative Care Coordinator for Prisons, who are working to meet the growing need for end of life care in our prison environments.

The discussion will be followed by a drinks reception and an opportunity to continue discussions informally.

The venue is fully wheelchair accessible. There is a hearing loop in the lecture room. We can offer large print copies of presentations if requested at least a week before the event. Assistance dogs are welcome.

This event will be live subtitled.
