125.00Book Now


Due to the current Covid-19 crisis, Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services have taken the decision to close the Education & Research Centre to all activity until the end of 2020, in order to minimise the risk to our patients. Accordingly, we have had to take the sad decision to postpone the Moving Points in Palliative Care Conference that was due to take place on 25 March 2020. The intention was to hold this event in the autumn but unfortunately this has not proved possible. All tickets purchased for the conference are to be refunded. Please contact us at to arrange your refund. We can confirm that we will be making this event available for free as a live online webinar with the same programme and speakers. We will update you as soon as we have confirmed a date and inform you of how you can access the event.
