Ashgate Hospicecare provides specialist palliative and end of life care.

Ashgate Hospicecare provides specialist palliative and end of life care. Ashgate's values are at the heart of everything they do — These values are grounded in their commitment to being the best they can be for their patients and the people who are important to them, for their customers and supporters, and for each other. We were commissioned by Ashgate Hospicecare to produce a documentary telling the story of a current patient, from their perspective, in their words and the words of their family.

Telling Fran'sStory

Film Production

We were aware that, given the nature of the care that Ashgate provide, finding a current patient who would be brave enough to tell their story would be challenging. Not to mention being sensitive to the wishes of their friends and family at a time that is undoubtedly challenging and personal. We felt incredibly lucky that a patient of Ashgate called Fran had agreed to take part and her wonderful husband Andy had also agreed to be interviewed. For them to let us into their lives, to welcome us into their home and allow us to meet their amazing son Xander was a true privilege and one that at times, was overwhelmingly heartbreaking.

Let's supportAshgate


Since completing the project we have been taken aback by the feedback from the team at Ashgate, the community and the audiences that have taken the time to watch the piece either online or at the open air cinema events. We feel honoured to have had the chance to get to know Fran and her family and tell their story. Hopefully the work we have done pays tribute to Fran and encourages many people to support the amazing service that Ashgate Hospicecare provide.
