PEOPLE had an opportunity to speak to the experts and find out what steps they can take to make their end of life experience better for them and for their loved ones at an event held at SAlusbury Guildhall.

The event coincided with Dying Matters Awareness Week which encouraged people to take five simple steps to plan for the future such as writing a will, recording funeral wishes, planning future care and support, considering registering as an organ donor and telling loved ones their wishes.

It was organised by Salisbury District Hospital and Salisbury Hospice staff and also provided information on the support that is available to people in these two settlings, together with a wide range of advice from external bodies that can help people in meeting the five simple Dying Matters steps.
