“ehospice strives to share knowledge and expertise about hospice and palliative care to a wider audience, so it is great to see our work recognised as a beacon of best practice in this area.

“Everyone who works on ehospice is immensely proud of this achievement, and we would like to thank all our readers and contributors for supporting the work we do in trying to improve end of life care for everyone who needs it. Let’s hope we can take away the award for the hospice and palliative care community next month!”
