Palliative Care Bites
In our Palliative Care Bites lecture series, we discuss a range of interesting and essential topics, through interactive lectures on Zoom. They are aimed at those working in primary care, care homes and general practice, as well as palliative care. But working in healthcare is not a necessity, we welcome and encourage anyone who is interested to join us and learn more about palliative care.
Upcoming session: ‘Conversations and stories at the end of life’, by Dr Kathryn Mannix

Project ECHO Networks
As a Project ECHO hub, Harlington Hospice hosts ECHO networks. These are themed communities of practice who meet regularly to share knowledge and experience with a particular group of practitioners. At Harlington Hospice our community of practice centers around palliative care and end of life. We work in collaboration with MyHealth Hillingdon to deliver our ECHO networks.
Project ECHO started in the USA and has now been brought to the UK by Hospice UK. You can learn more about Project ECHO here.
Our first ECHO project worked with London Ambulance Service (LAS) clinicians, to improve their confidence when attending to dying patients and caring for them at home, an increasing aspect of their role in the community.
Our community of practice included team members from:
- Harlington Hospice, including Dr Ros Taylor MBE and Jo Fernandes
- Central and North West London (CNWL) NHS Trust
- London Ambulance Service
- MyHealth Hillingdon
Our next ECHO projects are planned with Care Homes in North West London and Community Pharmacies.
