apologies if this is in the wrong section but i don't know where else to put it (plus i want the traffic)


The staff here are going to all lose their jobs, they looked after my father when he died and they looked after us too. There is not another hospice for 30 miles in our area and this will affect many people at their most vulnerable. My father was given dignity and care - i would hate to think that others may not be able to access this in their time of need.

We've had to move this to petitions, hope you understand.

Best of luck with your campaign thanks

Signed it's very important that hospice care is available locally, you don't benefit from centralized care as you say do with some medical specialities.

I'm really upset to find out the Pilgrims Hospice is closing. They provided outstanding end of life care for my beloved Grandma who died just before Christmas last year. None of the rest of our familu live in Canterbury and were all travelling hundreds of miles from various parts of the country every weekend. It was an awful time but the staff there were so kind and supportive. I'm heartbroken to think it might be shut down. Please please sign and share.

Signed. Will never forget how lovely everyone at my local hospice were with my grandad in his final days.
