It was inspiring to visit the Pilgrims Hospice. It provides dedicated hospice care for those in the East Kent and is a vital asset in our community. It was great to speak to health professionals and those in the hospice about the care they receive. Good quality palliative care should be a right for those who are coming to the end of their lives.
The work done at Pilgrims Hospice is going to become even more important in the coming years as our population ages. In the next 20 years, the percentage of people over 85 will double. Good quality end of life care from charities such as the Pilgrims Hospice is a crucial part of easing the suffering of those who are dying and treating them with respect.
