World Hospice & Palliative Care Day – A Day of Support and Insight

Oct 13, 2023


Today, on World Hospice & Palliative Care Day, Neuroendocrine Cancer UK stands alongside those who provide comfort, care, and compassion to individuals facing life-limiting illnesses.


What is World Hospice and Palliative Care Day (WHPCD)?

World Hospice and Palliative Care Day is an annual unified day of action to celebrate and support hospice and palliative care around the world. WHPCD has been marked every year for the last 17 years. Join us on Saturday 14 October to advocate for better hospice and palliative care services around the world.

Neuroendocrine Cancer and Palliative Care

Palliative care is a vital aspect of the journey for many living with neuroendocrine cancer. It offers comfort, relief from symptoms, and a holistic approach to care, focusing on the individual’s physical, emotional, and psychological well-being.

🎥 To shed light on this important topic, we invite you to watch our video, “Neuroendocrine Cancer & Palliative Care – Dr. Philip Lodge.” Dr. Philip Lodge from The Royal Free Hospital and Marie Curie Hospice discusses the nuances of palliative care in the context of neuroendocrine cancer.


We understand that this can be a challenging subject, and we encourage you to view it with a friend or loved one. It’s through open conversations, education, and shared support that we can make this a little less daunting.

On this World Hospice & Palliative Care Day, let’s come together to raise awareness, foster understanding, and offer our unwavering support to those navigating this path.
