Dying Matters 2017

Dying Matters Week in 2017 runs from 8th to 14th May.  The National Council for Palliative Care's Dying Matters initiative this year is themed "What Can You Do" using the twitter hashtag #Whatcanyoudo.   More information on dying matters can be found on the Dying Matters Website including a map of events across the country.


Across our North West Coast region many of our partners are holding events to raise awareness of Palliative and End of Life Care issues during Dying Matters week.   Some of these events are detailed below and we will be tweeting the details during the week.
