*LATEST* New podcast: Diagnosing dying

We’re tackling a very difficult subject in this episode. What happens when you get the news that nobody wants? How do you cope with a diagnosis that changes everything? We’re looking at how we listen to, accompany and support a loved one who has received a terminal diagnosis. Our guests have walked alongside and cared for so many people and their families as they’ve journeyed towards death. Professor Julia Riley, one of the country’s leading palliative care consultants and Clinical Lead for a service called Coordinate My Care. Poet and performer Audrey Ardern-Jones joins us for ‘Death Chatter’. Audrey worked for many years as a senior nurse at the Royal Marsden and her beautiful poetry reflects her nursing experiences at the bedside. Listen out for Audrey’s poems on the podcast. Listen to episode 25 of the podcast here.
