This year we are welcoming Myton Hospice as a charity partner. They believe that everyone matters for every single moment of their life; they focus on enhancing life when cure is no longer an option. They are leaders in compassionate end of life care; their work centres on patient wellbeing and involving them in decisions about their care. Perhaps most importantly they give patients more quality time with their loved ones. In 2019, they supported more than 1,800 people and their families, in the three hospices, via patient and family support services, and in the community through Myton at Home.
