The local NHS is looking at the way that patients and their carers are supported as they near the end of life.
Do you have experience of end of life care, as a patient or carer? If so, your insight can help us.
From diagnosis through to palliative care, services must work together to offer seamless care, advice and help at every stage. We want to involve patients and carers to help us deliver that, across Portsmouth and the surrounding areas.
The intention is to involve patients and carers at every stage as we look at how services work now, and how they could work better in future.
This project covers Fareham and Gosport, South Eastern Hampshire, and Portsmouth as well, so if you know of people living in elsewhere in that wider area who may also have a contribution to make, please let them know.
