When family, friends and medical staff know what is important to you, this can help you have a good death.

Our keynote speaker is Doctor Philip Hartropp, a retired Cambridgeshire GP, who works hard to improve care for people and their families at the end of life.

He will be talking about being in charge of how you die.
