                                                                to ensure that our programmes ultimately benefit patients who are
                                                                nearing the end of their lives, and the staff who care for them.
                                                                Thanks to Coastal West Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group (CWSCCG)
                                                                and Health Education England Kent, Surrey and Sussex for helping us
                                                                to deliver such a wide and diverse programme. Whilst we have tried
                                                                to include everything that we offer, we are always delighted to run

                                                                New in this prospectus you will find ‘frailty’ as a study event funded
                                                                by CWSCCG. As people live longer frailty care is becoming fundamental
                                                                to the way services are planned and is an area close to my heart. This
                                                                study day aims to raise awareness and understanding to help frailty
                                                                receive the attention that other long term conditions now have.

                                                                advanced dementia, for which there is a distinct lack of interventions,
                                                                as others are focused in the early or middle stages of dementia.
                                                                We are also looking forward to our exciting New purpose-built hospice
