Why this petition matters

Started by Alicia Hyland

Hospices are community owned charities run by Nurses, supported by local Drs, Psychologists & Social Workers caring for patients at end of life where they live at home or in a small cottage house with a beautiful garden meeting their physical, psychological & spiritual needs. It provides compassion & dignity by stoping ambulance ramping, lack of hospital beds & patients dying in aged care without adequate nursing care.

Hospice movement founder: Dame Cicely Saunders (1967), London, St Christopher's Hospice.
