Kirkwood Hospice Family Care Team

Seamus Nash

Today's speaker was Seamus Nash who described himself as an honorary Yorkshireman and representing the Kirkwood Hospice Family Care Team which is our current chairman's chosen charity. He gave a moving description of the work of his team that dealt with both pre and post bereavement issues facing families and patients.

He described how he drew on his personal experiences having lost his father last year to cancer. He emphasised that palliative care described their function of providing comfort to those in need.

He answered questions from the floor and there was a collection from members on exit which raised £141.
