Dying Matters has produced a number of films. These can be used in numerous health and social care training scenarios, as well as in hospices, GP surgeries, care homes, voluntary organisations, community groups – anywhere, in fact, where discussions about end of life planning are appropriate.
One such film is that by Kate Granger, a Specialist Registrar in Geriatric Medicine, who has incurable cancer. Since her diagnosis, Kate has written two books and launched the “hello my name is” campaign, which has received national attention. In the powerful and emotional ‘Kate’s Story’, Kate and her husband Chris discuss their situation with honesty, humour and pragmatism.
