Outstanding Ellenor hospice featuring in a 13-part documentary is 'privileged' to be able to promote home care

Staff, patients and families at the Ellenor hospice in Gravesend, Kent, are the subject of a 13-part television series aiming to increase awareness of hospice care and the diverse range of support they provide.

The series has been commissioned by the Together television channel and produced by Knickerbockerglory – the creators of Channel 5’s long running GPs: Behind Close Doors series.

The first episode of The Hospice was broadcast in May. Each episode follows the personal stories of children and adults who are receiving end of life care from the hospice via the inpatient ward, day services or in their own homes.
