National Association for Hospice at Home
The National Association for Hospice at Home (NAHH) is the national umbrella and representative body for Hospice at Home organisations in the United Kingdom. NAHH exists to support its members and other organisations as they strive to develop and improve the palliative and end of life care they provide in patients own homes. The aim is for the very best care for everyone facing the end of life, no matter where they live, who they are or what their condition is.
NAHH also exists to support the public by providing information and guidance on palliative and end of life care provision in their locality. Our vision is to both inspire and influence in order to support our members to deliver the highest quality hospice care at home. With reference to national guidance NAHH seeks to support the ‘right’ care at the ‘right’ time in the ‘right’ place. We work in partnership with our members to deliver the following aims:
- To collaborate with other national organisations relevant to the objects of the Association, being a key advocate for hospice at home services
- Offer support to those providing hospice at home services, acting as a critical friend to our members
- Promote innovation, quality and sharing of best practice
- Take an evidence based approach to the advice and support we offer our members
- Ensure that we are sustainable as a charitable organisation.
We currently have more than 95 adult and children service members across the UK, providing palliative and end of life care services in the community. Our website www.NAHH.org.uk includes information and guidance for patients and carers, resources and information for professionals as well as networking opportunities, conferences and links to pertinent organisations and news.
