Hospice at Home West Cumbria (HHWC) is one of more than 200 charitable hospices across the UK taking part in Hospice Care Week (10 – 14 October) an awareness campaign led by the national hospice and end of life care charity, Hospice UK.

Hospice Care Week is a week dedicated to celebrating hospices across the UK that work with local communities to provide care and support to patients, carers and families with palliative and end-of-life care needs. The campaign encourages people to have conversations about hospice care and raises the organisations profile, to ensure that the people of West Cumbria are aware of the services they can access.

This week we will be are providing insights into the roles and responsibilities of our staff in each service to highlight what it takes to run our charity on a day to day basis.
