Sir Jim Paice MP recently attended a Westminster reception event hosted by the UK’s leading children’s palliative care charity, Together for Short Lives.

The South East Cambridgeshire MP heard Together for Short Lives’ eight priorities for the next Parliament and the steps needed to transform children’s palliative care to significantly improve the lives of children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

Sir Jim said “I am a huge supporter of East Anglia Children Hospices and the vital support they give to children with life limiting conditions and their families.

“I am committed to ensuring sustainable and fairly funded children’s palliative care and support in Cambridgeshire centred on the needs of children and families.”

Together for Short Lives has developed the priorities for the next Parliament with direct input from young people who need palliative care, as well as their families and the professionals and services that support them.
