Charity number


PATCH - Palliation and the Caring Hospital is the first charity to specifically support specialist Palliative Care for patients in Hospitals. 55% of people die in Hospital and there is nothing more reassuring than a Doctor who can talk to you about your symptoms as accurately as you can. A number of recent reports found the care of patients in hospital who were very ill or dying, to be wanting. Only a minority of patients who could benefit from quality palliative care receive it. We are all diminished unless there is urgent improvement.

PATCH was formally launched at a Civic Reception held by The Dundee Lord Provost at the City Chambers on 2nd June 2014.  A photograph of the Dignitaries and the PATCH Board is shown in the Gallery.
