In a nutshell: A hospice in south London is using virtual reality (VR) to help benefit people who are approaching the end of their lives, by allowing them to enjoy experiences they might otherwise be isolated from. It is a joint initiative between Flix Films and Trinity Hospice in Clapham and is one of the many ways medical professionals are now using VR to improve patient well-being.
