Hospice Care Update

On Thursday the 31st of October last, Prime Time broadcast a report looking at the lack of hospice care around the country showing how every year thousands of terminally ill patients are denied access to in patient hospice care simply because of where they live. Our report featured Patrick Quane, who talked bravely about suffering with advanced cancer and about the invaluable care and services he had access to at the Milford Care Centre in Limerick.

It is with much sadness that Prime Time has learned that Patrick passed away over the Christmas period in the hospice unit. Patrick was glad to be able to tell his story and it was a privilege to help him do so. See a link to Patrick’s story below.
