Sharing experiences of palliative care in mid and south Essex

Posted on: May 16, 2022

If you – or someone you know – has been personally affected by palliative care, we want to hear from you.

Palliative care is treatment, care and support for someone with a complex or incurable condition, and those at the end of their life. It focuses on the quality of someone’s life, managing physical symptoms, offering emotional and practical support to the patient, their family and friends. Palliative care can take place in the home, hospital, care home or a hospice.

We’re working with Havens Hospices, St. Luke’s Hospice Basildon and District, Saint Francis Hospice and Farleigh Hospice, so your experiences will help shape the future of palliative care services for local people of all ages in mid and south Essex.

Whether cared for by a hospital, hospice or community service, we would like to know what you most wanted and needed during this time, and if there were any barriers to accessing these.

The survey will take five minutes and will be completely anonymous, unless you have more to say and would like to leave your details. You can also contact us on 0300 500 1895 if you need to access the survey in a different way.

Closes 22nd May.
