The Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care provides the secretariat for the Cross Party Group in the Scottish Parliament on Palliative Care.
The Cross Party Group provides an opportunity for MSPs from all parties, members of the public, and representatives from various organisations to meet and discuss a shared interest in palliative care.
All are welcome to join or attend meetings of the Cross Party Group. Cross Party Groups are regulated by Section 6 of the Code of Conduct for Members of the Scottish Parliament. For more information about Cross Party Groups, see the Scottish Parliament website.
The next meeting of the Cross Party Group will take place on Wednesday 14 December 2016, and explore the question:
What can be done to encourage more open and supportive attitudes and behaviour relating to death, dying and bereavement in Scotland?
There will be a series of short presentations from different perspectives, looking at what can be learnt from work already underway in this field, and exploring potential useful areas and approaches for future work. Presentations will be followed by an opportunity for group discussion.
Please get in touch with Pauline to request a place at the meeting.
