Imagine escaping to a tranquil forest narrated by the soothing voice of Sir David Attenborough, all while managing pain and finding peace. This isn’t a scene from a movie; it’s the groundbreaking reality at Prospect Hospice, thanks to pioneering virtual reality (VR) technology.

Prospect Hospice is leading the way in the Southwest, using VR to provide innovative pain relief for patients.

During her most recent visit the President of Prospect Hospice, The Queen, tested the charity’s virtual reality headsets and so can you at its first-ever Business Breakfast.

Prospect Hospice is inviting local professionals to its free Business Breakfast on Thursday 21 March at 7.45am to discover the revolutionary world of VR pain relief firsthand. This exclusive event is open to all professionals and offers a unique opportunity to enjoy a delicious breakfast from the Heart of the Hospice café within the hospice in Wroughton.

Paula Kimmel, learning and development manager at Prospect Hospice said: “We are excited to be holding our first Business Breakfast and welcoming new faces in the hospice to learn a little more about the care and services we offer to people in our community.

“You’ll have time to network before and after the event, and a chance to hear an update on the work of Prospect Hospice and our plans. With updates from our end-of-life experts on how tailored medication can alleviate pain symptoms and enhance comfort as well as the chance to gain awareness of the drugs used in end-of-life care.”
