We invite you to a virtual event about life and death planning

About this event

The London Borough of Barnet Patient Engagement Group (PEG), Healthwatch Barnet and North London Hospice are inviting the local community to a virtual event to stimulate conversations about life and death planning, as part of Dying Matters Awareness Week May 10th- 16th 2021

Starting a discussion about death and dying is never easy but is usually one we will all have. Whether it is about your own wishes or someone important in your life, talking about planning for end of life needs to happen at a much earlier time.

We are inviting you and your peers to a short film screening, followed by a Q&A and discussion with the team behind the film on Tuesday May 11th 2-3pm on Zoom webinar. The short film is called ‘What Matters To Me” and aims to encourage lifelong 'What matters' conversations about planning for life and death.

We are delighted to have Dr Julian Abel, Dr Kathryn Mannix and Dr Jo Brady on our panel.

There will be time after the screening for a short discussion about what thoughts the film has raised and for personal reflection. A take-away guide will be provided to attendees, signposting to local support services.

This event will be one of many happening nationally during Dying Matters Awareness Week, which aims at getting people together to break the stigma, challenging preconceptions and normalising public openness around planning for end of life, dying and bereavement.

We believe being more comfortable talking about life wishes and preferences makes our communities more compassionate, resilient and caring.

We hope the event will help you to start having these conversations with the important people in your life. #WhatMattersToMeBarnet #DMAW21
