The work of people supporting those with life-limiting conditions is being remembered on World Hospice and Palliative Care Day this Saturday.
Highlands and Islands MSP Jamie Halcro Johnston said: “As communities come together to protect those most vulnerable to Covid-19, we should remember all those who are being supported by hospices and are receiving palliative care.
“World Hospice and Palliative Care Day reminds us of the remarkable work being carried out to support people, and their friends and families, who have a life-limiting illness.
“This work has been made more challenging by the restrictions caused by the pandemic which has led to the heart-breaking situation where some people are not being able to see the friends and family they would normally have around them.
“We owe a huge debt of gratitude to everyone who is, in extremely difficult times, helping support those in care and their families”.
