About this event
This day is one of two public consultation events being organised to support the national review of choice in end of life care.
This is a chance for people with a personal interest in, or personal experience of palliative and end of life care to hear more about the review, share their thoughts about the kinds of choices that are important in end of life care and what needs to be in place in order for them to be a reality.
Please note that the review focuses on end of life care for adults in the context of the current legal framework i.e. it will not focus on assisted suicide.
Who can come?
This event is aimed at people who primarily have personal experience or a personal interest in palliative and end of life care.
We appreciate that many people will have both professional and personal experience but the focus of this event is on personal experience.
