Join us for a thought-provoking and unique evening with Dr Katherine Sleeman, the first palliative care specialist to receive the prestigious NIHR Clinician Scientist Fellowship.

Featured on BBC2 Horizon Programme ‘We need to talk about Death’ earlier this year Dr Katherine Sleeman, who is a clinician and academic at the Cicely Saunders Institute King’s College London, will be sharing her insights, expertise and the latest research on the importance of palliative care and what this means to society.

A lively ‘In-conversation’ session will follow the talk from Dr Katherine Sleeman.  The panel of guests will include other professionals and individuals with an interest in palliative care and will be chaired by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire’s Ronnie Barbour.

Is the ability to anticipate death and prepare for it important to you? Can control and choice over the manner in which we die be possible and do you think this is achievable? What part do you think hospices should play in this?
