Colleagues and members of the local community gathered at the Sherborne Cinema in Gloucester for the launch of Getting it Right, a film about end of life care. Getting it Right

The video features clinicians, services users, relatives and representatives from local groups talking first-hand about their experiences of end of life care, the importance of understanding the needs of the individual and providing the right care at the right time. It explores difficult conversations about death, and is both moving and empowering. 

Jules Roberts, Clinical Pathway Lead at the Trust, researched and produced the film and says “It has been an absolute privilege to work with everyone on the film and I am extremely proud of the end result. This is a powerful way to raise awareness of the importance of high quality care that is tailored to the individual as we only get one chance to get it right. The filming process has been a great collaboration between the trust, local communities and partner organisations."

The 30 minute video is made up of six short segments, each with focus on a particular aspect on end of life care. These will be used for internal training, and will be shared with local partners. A short five minute version can be found on YouTube here.  

This film has been made possible through Listening into Action.
