We usually have between six and twelve people come to each meeting. We now have four meetings a year, 10-3 with lunch together. Some members travel a long way to meetings and some in the farthest reaches may wish for something a little closer.
Our meetings take place at different hospices each time. Members lead discussions/do presentations on prepared subjects though much time is given to informal news sharing and discussion on any relevant issues.

The group is going well, with a good core of approximately six to eight of us. We meet three or four times a year, and have support / sharing experience / CPD type discussions. We have spent the last eighteen months or so visiting each other in situ which has been educative.
