We are very sad to hear that Jim Dobbin MP has died. As the Member of Parliament for Heywood and Middleton, Jim was committed to improving end of life care in this country and served as Secretary of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Hospice and Palliative Care. He was a man of wisdom, compassion and gentleness. We send deep condolences to his wife, family and friends.
