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 March, 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 is to hold this event in the autumn and all tickets purchased for the conference will be transferable to the autumn date – we will update you as soon as we have confirmed a date. If you would prefer to receive a full refund instead, please contact our administration office by remail
