The Hospice: the new ground breaking TV series

Every moment matters at The Hospice.

The Hospice is the new, ground breaking series focusing on the lives of the patients under the care of ellenor - a British hospice based in Kent that provides individualized approach to end of life care. 

Commissioned by Together and produced by Knickerbockerglory – the creators of Channel 5’s long-running series ‘GP: Behind Closed Doors’, The Hospice gives viewers a unique opportunity to witness the incredible palliative care provided to patients of all ages by the amazing staff and volunteers at ellenor.

Together will broadcast the first of 13 hour-long episodes on Tuesday 8th May at 10pm.  The series will show how every precious moment matters as it follows the deeply personal stories of adults and children who are receiving end-of-life care both in their own homes, and at the ellenor inpatient ward in Gravesend.

Also highlighted is the inspirational way that the hospice staff and volunteers support the patients who are terminally ill and their families.  Their expertise, passion and commitment create a warm, restful and even happy environment, enabling precious family time together.

Along with revealing the incredible work at ellenor, Together is partnering with Hospice UK and Together For Short Lives for the series to highlight the need of support of the hospices across the UK encouraging viewers to raise awareness for their vital work during Dying Matters Week (14-20 May) and Children’s Hospice Week (21-27 May), along with ongoing calls to action throughout June and July.

Watch The Hospice, from the 8th of May at 10pm. New and exclusive on Together.

    I watched the first episode of the Hospice (recorded) this morning. However I cannot series link it on Sky and don't know why? It just does not give me that option? It was a brilliant and heartwarming documentary. Many of my friends/family have passed through its doors.

  19. TogetherTVAdmin 1 week 3 days ago

    Hi Sheena,

    series link with Sky is now fixed and should be work. Please let us know!
