Set in Harold’s Cross and Wicklow Hospice, the documentary will feature some familiar faces from Wicklow Hospice team

Geraldine Tracey, Head of Nursing & Operations, Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services, Wicklow & Blackrock Hospice said: “We are delighted to take part in this special documentary and to showcase our services in Wicklow and Dublin as well as the work of our staff and volunteers. We have worked closely with Virgin Media to show how palliative care is about so much more than just the end of life, but also a celebration of life.

“We are very grateful for the generosity of patients, families, volunteers and out staff in sharing their stories to help people better understand what goes on ‘inside the hospice’ and to hopefully help others around the country to get a sense of the important role palliative care can provide for patients and families”, she added.
