Bupa Giving has pledged £1,187,041 to The Marie Curie Palliative Care Institute and The National Council for Palliative Care.
Bupa Giving is a new charitable initiative set-up to celebrate Bupa turning 60 next year and complements BUPA's existing charitable initiatives. Bupa Giving supports the development of services and those who provide them to improve health and care.
The money will be used over three years to fund three different projects in the fields of palliative and dementia care in care homes. Palliative care improves the quality of life for patients and families who face life-threatening illness by providing pain relief, symptom relief and spiritual and psychosocial support from diagnosis to the end of life and bereavement
