Free Seminar – Ending Well – explore issues around end of life

You are invited to a free seminar and discussion on Ending Well. This will be held at 6pm on Wednesday 28th June 2023 at the University of Winchester’s West Downs Centre on Romsey Road. 

Ending Well is organised by The University of Winchester in partnership with the Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Winchester Hospice, The Countess of Brecknock Hospice in Andover and St Michael’s Hospice in Basingstoke.

A taboo very often exists around talking about death, dying and bereavement, yet we know that this hasn’t always been the case. These are experiences we all face, and helping individuals to live as well as possible until they die, and to die with dignity, is vitally important to society. This seminar will explore different perspectives on the end of life, and start a conversation about what dying well means and why it matters.

The event features an expert panel of speakers, who will share their thoughts and take part in a Q&A session. Chaired by Dr Lara Alloway, Consultant in Palliative Medicine and Iain Cameron, Chief Executive at St. Michael’s Hospice, the panel will include:

    • Dr Anna Wilkinson, Consultant in Palliative Care
    • Dr Charlotte Hutchings, a GP and the clinical director for North and Mid Hampshire for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight ICB
    • Revd Ruth Midcalf, Chaplain of Hampshire Hospitals Foundation Trust

This seminar is part of a series of prestigious seminars held by the University of Winchester, Hampshire Hospitals Foundation Trust, St. Michael’s Hospice, Winchester Hospice, and The Countess of Brecknock Hospice, covering topical subjects on the theme of palliative and end of life care, and the experience of death. Previous seminars have explored key issues about health and wellbeing.
