New Altofts Support Group To Support People With Life-Limiting Illnesses

It's hoped people in Altofts with a life-limiting illness will recieve better long term support - as a hospice outreach service launches today.

Pontefract's Prince of Wales Hospice is extending care into the community, for people with cancer, heart or lung disease and Motor Neurone Disease.

Health Care Worker - Barbara Hughes - says it'll be easier for people to self refer.

The launch of the weekly service at St Mary Madalene Church Hall coincides with Hospice Care Week.
