No Barriers Here: Identity, culture, ethnicity and race

The Mary Stevens Hospice has joined forces with Solihull based media production company, Zebra Digital, to produce a film focused on their current No Barriers Here study with people excluded due to identity, culture, ethnicity and race. The film premiered at the Public Health Palliative Care International Conference on Wednesday 21st September where the team are sharing their award-winning practice about challenging inequity, accessible advance care planning and addressing barriers to palliative and end of life care.

No Barriers Here was originally developed in 2019 and each phase of the project has worked in co-production with people and communities who experience disparities in palliative and end of life care. This film gives an insight into research that the hospice is leading in partnership with Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust and funded by NHS Charities Together.
