Photo Series Captures Death and Dying in Palliative Care Unit

Western Sydney Local Health District multimedia manager Carlos Furtado recently had the privilege of photographing a day in Mt Druitt Hospital’s Supportive and Palliative Care Unit.  

With the consent of patients and families, Mr Furtado was given access to photograph the most intimate of moments when patients, families and staff were dealing head-on with the reality of dying and death.
