Dying Matters awareness week

Dying Matters Awareness Week is an unparalleled opportunity to place the importance of talking about death, dying and bereavement firmly on our agenda.

This year is the eighth Awareness Week. With each passing year, the week has grown in size and impact, with increasing numbers of people getting involved.

BIG thanks to all the individuals and teams across DCHS who will be supporting the event with a display or event in their local area.

To show your support to the campaign we would like to invite all our budding poets to write a poem on anything they wish to do so, that would link to the theme of the week. If you could please send your contributions to Karen.Kitchen@nhs.net by 15 May  These will then  be shared with the members of the End of life care group and a winner will be selected!
