Despite being a small charity, Prospect Hospice is fuelled by a powerful mission: to ensure everyone has access to exceptional end-of-life care, whenever and wherever they need it, be it within the hospice in Wroughton or in the comfort of their own homes.

Sharing our knowledge at the International Palliative Care Congress allows us to reach a wider audience, ultimately improving the lives of patients facing palliative and end-of-life challenges.

“We are incredibly proud to have Dorinda Moffat and Dr. Sheila Popert presenting at the International Palliative Care Congress,” said Carolyn Bell, director of patient services. “They are both highly experienced in palliative and end-of-life care and their conference contributions reflect our commitment to excellence and the ongoing advancement of best practices in this critical field.”
