Motion: Hospice Care

Council - 2nd February 2021

"This Council recognises that hospice care is a vitally important part of our care system; considers it necessary that people approaching the end of life, their families and carers get the right care and support where and when they need it; notes that hospice staff deserve recognition for the world-class medical care and emotional support they provide not just to patients but also to their families; and looks forward to the hospice movement going from strength to strength in years to come.


Accordingly, this council agreed to write to the Minister of Health, Robin Swann MLA, calling upon him to ensure fair and transparent funding in line with demand and continued high quality palliative and end-of-life care".

Proposed by: Councillor Garrity, Seconded by Councillor McPhillips
