"Patients can be cared for and supported in a range of settings, not just at home but at hospices, nursing homes and hospitals, surrounded by highly trained professionals skilled in controlling pain and relieving symptoms."
"For patients, hospice care is free whether it is provided by the NHS (National Health Service) or a charity. Chris Shaw of campaigners Help the Hospices, says many voluntary sector hospices are firmly rooted in their local community and the charities that run voluntary sector hospices depend hugely on the goodwill and generosity of local businesses and individuals to fund their work."
