About this event

Thinking ahead to the end of life is a sensitive subject that no one likes to think about.  However, the better we plan the more likely we are to have a good send-off.

Healthwatch in Sussex invite you to join a conversation about this important life-cycle event and discuss:

  • If I was ill, would I prefer to die at home or in a hospice or hospital?  
  • Who would I like around me at the end of my life?
  • What else do I need to consider when thinking about the end of my life?

This session is open for everyone, whether you are a member of the public, a patient, a carer or health & social care staff.

You will hear from speakers about ReSPECT, End of Life Companions and other ways to plan your end of life. The session will also include an opportunity to discuss your priorities for your end of life and to hear from the Head of Integrated Care at the Clinical Commissioning Group.

Speakers:

Dr Marian Messih, GP Clinical Lead with special interest in End of Life care for elderly people.

Li Mills, End of Life Doula (or companion)

Christine D’Cruz, Healthwatch Director and co-author of “A Good Send-Off”
