Where:  Mercure Bristol Holland House Hotel & Spa, Bristol
When:   Thursday 29th and Friday 30th September 2016


“Having attended 4 conferences to date, I can honestly say this was the best yet. The quality of the speakers was outstanding and the subjects were current, relevant and enabled delegates to go back to their work place and implement small changes that will make a big difference. I returned with renewed enthusiasm and will “ Keep Calm and Take on the World!!” I had the proverbial light bulb moment this year too in fully understanding and able to see how the NAHH is able to be the rock on which we are able to form our foundations and support in all we do on a day to day basis.”

– Sally Taylor, Hospice at Home Coordinator and Out Reach Community Support, Dean Forest Hospice
