As part of Good Death Week the Ninewells Palliative Care Team is hosting an exhibition in the hospital which explores the idea that as people’s health deteriorates, care and support comes in many guises.

Staff and visitors had the opportunity to check out the exhibition yesterday outside the dining room on level 5.  There will also be another chance to view it beside the Gannochy Lecture Theatre in the Medical School tomorrow and Friday.

Good Death Week (14-20 May) promotes the positives of living in a society where people can be open about talking about loss and grief.

The Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care (SPPC) brings together health and social care professionals from many sectors to improve people’s experiences of declining health, death, dying and bereavement.

Good Life Good Death Good Grief is an alliance established by the SPPC to raise public awareness of these issues.
