NHS graphic.A conversation on a different ending. Wednesday 13 March 2024. 6pm - 8.30pm.

Good care at the end of life places the individual at the centre of their care. The wishes and choices of the person who is dying are paramount because what is important to each individual in the last phase of their life will be different.

Death is marked in so many ways across different communities and cultures and the expression of grief differs so much.

Who is this event for?

This ‘A conversation on’ event is for everyone with an interest in end-of-life care – health and care professionals (including primary and secondary care, care homes, social care providers), voluntary and community sector organisations, patient groups, carers and individuals.

Sir Mayur Lakhani CBE, local GP and a champion for the provision of high-quality care at end of life, will lead the event, which also brings together a range of other guest speakers who will talk about end of life from a range of perspectives, addressing some of the most important and current topical issues in palliative and end-of-life care.

Key areas of the agenda will include:
• working together to achieve a different ending
• delivering compassionate care across cultural boundaries
• historical and cultural variants on the good death
• open panel and participant discussion.

We hope that attendees will come along and share their insights and views of death and dying, particularly the nuances of different cultures and the different beliefs, experiences and values of patients and their families. The learning will be used to inform our NHS strategy for end-of-life services.

The event will be held online (Zoom). You can join here.
