Event aims to raise profile of hospices
EAST HULL: An annual awareness event to raise the profile of hospices is starting today.

A spokesman said: "Hospice care is not about buildings – it is about people and communities, from the people who support and work in partnership with their local hospices, to the patients, friends and families who rely on them."

It provides care for patients with cancer, neurological illnesses, heart diseases, respiratory diseases, HIV and Aids and many other illnesses.
