Welcome to the Somerset Emotional Wellbeing (SEW) podcast!
In this episode, End of Life Care, our hosts Dr. Andrew Tresidder and Dr. Peter Bagshaw are joined by Laura Hawke, an Occupational Therapist and Dr. Jo Lutyens, a palliative care Consultant, both employed by Somerset NHS Foundation Trust, to discuss new developments in End of Life Care, why it is important to add quality to the days that people have left and how to find more information about palliative care through the new Somerset End of Life Care website.
The SEW podcast is a free weekly show hosted by Dr. Andrew Tresidder and Dr. Peter Bagshaw. In each episode, the doctors discuss a different topic related to mental and emotional wellbeing and often invite expert guests to join them in conversation. The show is aimed at the people of Somerset and beyond; the advice and guidance provided should apply to anybody who needs it, whenever they need it.
All episodes of SEW are now available to listen to free through Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Deezer, Google Podcasts, Amazon Podcasts, Somerset Emotional Wellbeing or wherever you get your podcasts!
