'We are hospice care' is the theme for this year’s awareness week (9-15 October 2017)
Following the special meeting that has taken place this week, the merger between Hospice UK and the National Council for Palliative Care (NCPC) has been agreed.
• What matters to the person who is dying? • Wirral Palliative Care Symptom Control Guidelines • Wirral Respiratory Guidelines • UPDATED Gold Standards framework Prognostic Indicator Guidelines
This Resource has been designed to be a comprehensive reference for end of life care available on Wirral for both the general public and professionals.
It lists the various topics in alphabetical order. The information on each tab explains very simply what it is, and to whom it will be of most use. It goes on to give various weblink buttons, where the detailed information can be found if required. Please be aware that, by using the buttons, you may be re-directed to another website away from the End of Life Care site, depending on the information you are accessing.
The Resource underpins the value set out in the Wirral End of Life Care Charter, which calls for care, kindness and understanding by all facing the challenges of end of life care.

Please be aware the Resource is still being ‘fine-tuned’ to include all the information that people could find useful when considering end of life care service needs. If you feel that a particular topic is missing, we’d like to hear about it.
All the weblinks were activate at the time of publication, and a review will take place every six months. However, if you find there is an error, please let us know so it can be rectified as soon as possible.
Please note, in situations of immediate distress, Wirral Hospice’s Advice & Information Line for patients, carers and families with palliative care needs is available 24 hours a day: telephone 0151 482 8988.
The information contained within this Resource has been compiled by the members of Wirral Palliative and End of Life Care Partnership Group.
