'Best Digital Legacy Platform' - Winner

MyWishes wins ‘Best Digital Legacy Platform’ Award

We are delighted to announce that MyWishes has won the  ‘Best Digital Legacy Platform’ Award’ from the SME Business Elite Awards.

We have worked tirelessly to develop and provide a free to use, future planning platform that is of high value to society. Digital assets planning and digital legacy safeguarding is an important part of this

We would like to say a big “THANK YOU” for the nomination and this month’s award.


How we support our community with digital legacy safeguarding and digital assets planning

Our multifaceted approach to digital legacy and digital assets planning includes:

  • Planning for digital assets held in third party online accounts (social networks etc) that are of a sentimental value within a Social Media Will.
  • Leaving Goodbye Messages that allows loved ones and future generations to receive messages following death.
  • Planning digital assets of a monetary value within a legally binding Last Will & Testament.
  • Writing or publishing a self written or video recorded obituary to help contribute to the person’s own obituary. This task can form part of someone’s Funeral Wishes.
  • Developing digital legacy tutorials to empower society with different aspects of digital asset ownership, digital death and digital legacy on MyWishes and third party accounts (social networks etc).
  • Raising awareness about the importance of digital legacy planning in the media and speaking at events. A list of events we are speaking at in 2024 (last updated on the 27th December 2023) can be viewed here.
  • Highlighting the importance of philanthropic activities such as leaving a gift to others and charities Last Will and Testaments and supporting people who wish to donate money to a charity at their funeral (legacy giving).

The best person to manage your digital assets and put plans in place to help safeguard your digital legacy is you. You don’t have to pay anyone to do this, you just need to allocate a small amount of time to address it.

Shortlisted for a Royal Society of Medicine Award

Mental health and palliative care: Equipped to care’

The ‘Wellbeing Hub’ developed in partnership with Harlington Hospice was recently shortlisted for the Royal Society of Medicine’s annual ‘Palliative Care and Mental Health Prize’.

The award formed part of the RSM’s annual ‘Mental health and palliative care: Equipped to care’ event. 

The wider objective on the event for attendees was to

  • Gain an overview of new innovations for meeting the palliative needs of people with mental illness 
  • Understand approaches to managing mental and physical multimorbidity
  • Learn from best practice examples in psychiatry and palliative care 
  • Engage in interactive workshops and case based discussions exploring mental and physical multimorbidity 

Presenting our work at the Royal Society of Medicine

As part of the award process, we were invited to present a moderated oral presentation at the Royal Society of Medicine in London on the 29th November.

Unfortunately the Wellbeing Hub did not win the overall award however we are grateful to the RSM for short listing the project as a ‘prize submission’. We also thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to present our work and learn how other professionals are providing improving care and innovating within the palliative care and mental health space.

About the Wellbeing Hub

The Wellbeing Hub was created following a successful grant from the Masonic Charitable Foundation. The grant was managed and allocated by Hospice UK to help ‘reimagine hospice wellbeing services’.

This project is a partnership between Harlington Hospice and the tech for good platform, MyWishes. The Wellbeing Hub launched during Hospice UK’s annual ‘Hospice Care Week 2023’.

Project aims 

  • Deliver first-of-its-kind Digital Wellbeing Hub.
  • Empower the local community to take charge of their future health and wellbeing (two are symbiotic). 
  • Utilise technology to reimagine existing wellbeing services.
  • Improve residents transitioning from community care to the inpatient unit (and help make hospice care feel more approachable).
  • Normalise hospice wellbeing services.
  • Integrate with Hillingdon’s newly created End of life coordination Hub
  • Improve triaging and person centred care across Hillingdon (in bith clinical and non clinical settings).

To learn more about the Wellbeing Hub click here

“Developing the Wellbeing Hub was a great opportunity to learn from other professionals providing wellbeing services in. Hillingdon. The wellbeing services provided by Harlington Hospice and charitable partners have also been a source of personal inspiration. We look forward to supporting Hillingdon residents in the months and years to come whilst improving the value provided through the Wellbeing Hub and the others services available to residents on MyWishes”.

Harlington Hospice and MyWishes launch Wellbeing Hub

What is the Wellbeing Hub?

The Wellbeing Hub has been developed to empower Hillingdon residents’ and improve overall feelings of wellbeing. It has been launched to coincide with this year’s Hospice Care Week and World Hospice and Palliative Care Day. 

The Wellbeing Hub has been developed in partnership between Harlington Hospice and MyWishes.

Supporting people living in Hillingdon

Harlington Hospice is excited to announce a partnership with MyWishes to launch the Digital Wellbeing Hub, during this year’s Hospice Care Week.

This innovative offering provides a unique platform that seeks to empower and improve the overall wellbeing of people living in and around Hillingdon.

How it works

The new ‘Wellbeing Hub’ is now available for all Hillingdon residents; it hosts newly created content to better engage with the local community. By integrating modern, hospice wellbeing content alongside more generalised wellbeing content it is hoped that a symbiotic bridge between the two areas will be created. It is also hoped that by providing the general public with engaging hospice wellbeing content prior to the need for receiving care, the transition to hospice care will be easier and less daunting in the future.

Reimagining Hospice Wellbeing Services

Two examples newly created content is shown below. They are examples of reimagining and modernising ‘The Whirlpool of Grief theory’ created by Dr Wilson is visualised within an animation. The ‘on-demand’ Trupudio class uses engaging and synchronised visuals to help energise and engage the participant.

Reimagining Wellbeing Services

The wellbeing hub stands as a pioneering initiative that empowers people to enhance their wellbeing in a holistic way with their own unique wellbeing journeys. To enable this, the platform allows for users to set personal goals and accomplish tasks that align with their individual wellbeing aspirations. 

The Purpose

The core aim of this project is not only to attract new people to the wellbeing hub but also to reach those who may be unaware of the extensive services offered by Harlington Hospice. It is important to note that the wellbeing hub is not exclusively focused on Harlington Hospice’s services, but rather it serves as a public facing community service and resource. The platform also efficiently signposts residents to a number of other local organisations that can support residents with their wellbeing. 

Reimagining Wellbeing Services

Accessibility and user-friendliness were key focus areas when developing the hub and accessing the site is very straightforward and only takes users a few minutes to register. When registering, a Hillingdon postcode needs to be added in order to access Hillingdon specific content. The resident then needs to select the ‘My Wellbeing’ tab from the menu on the left hand side, which brings them to the wellbeing hub and its resources.

Wellbeing Hub – academic poster

We published a poster whilst the Wellbeing Hub was being still built.  The poster helped share the story behind the project and it’s mission. It also gave us an opportunity to provide a sneak peak of the content created and the features we had started to develop. The poster was displayed at the 12th World Research Congress of the European Association for Palliative Care in Rotterdam. The Congress is organised by the European Association of Palliative Care.

Remembering Lucy Watts MBE

In loving memory of Lucy Watts MBE

We are immensely saddened to learn of Lucy’s death on Wednesday morning. Lucy was an award-winning patient advocate, disability activist, consultant and public speaker. She was a hugely well respected palliative care advocate and a thought leader within this field.

Lucy was one of the most enthusiastic and passionate people who I have ever met, worked with and alongside. She was both a friend and colleague who will be missed dearly.

About Lucy

Lucy was a someone who got things done and the importance of her work is valued by all those who are aware of it. Lucy’s ongoing work and tireless campaigning leaves both a positive and meaningful legacy.

Lucy worked and innovated across an array of different fields. She provided a voice to those whose voice was muffled and campaigned both passionately and gracefully for the worthy causes she believed in.

A few years ago, there was a backlash against the media and those who would call high achieving people living with disabilities and life-limiting illnesses “inspiring”. I would like to take the time to apologise to Lucy because despite her being one of the people who didn’t like this term, she was inspiring. She inspired me and many others in both her life and work.

“I have a life-limiting condition, meaning I have had to do my end of life planning and put things in place for when the time comes, including my advanced care plan, my funeral wishes and lasting power of attorney (LPA). Naturally, my ‘social media will’ is a part of that end of life planning.” 

– Lucy Watts MBE

Lucy's work within digital legacy and digital assets

Once again, I cannot start to sum up the depth and importance of the work Lucy undertook over the years. The rest of this post will highlight a fraction of her work within the field of making plans for our lives digitally and areas relating to safeguarding our digital legacy.

I first met Lucy when working with Together for Short Lives in 2014. This project involved streaming the pantomime ‘Cinderella’ to 12 of children’s hospices at Christmas. After a number of discussions it was clear that Lucy was very interested in utilising technology for future care planning and for philanthropic reasons.

This shared interest led to friendship and collaboration on various projects over the last 9 years.

Documenting wishes within a 'Social Media Will' and informing people about it

Lucy made plans for her digital assets and her online accounts. This is clear today with posts being shared from her personal accounts informing her friends, family and wider society of her death. She spoke openly about her wishes and used her documentation process to help inform and empower others across TV, online and print media.

Insights were shared on the BBC’s ‘Rest in Pixels’ programme, Joan Bakewell’s ‘We need to talk about death’ on BBC Radio 4 and in a news post titled ‘My Social Media Will‘.

Joining MyWishes

Lucy joined the MyWishes team in 2020 as the ‘head of lived experience’. Her role was to “help MyWishes to better understand the end user, improve the user’s experience and help improve the support provided for all users. I will also help ensure that lived experience becomes a core part of MyWishes. We will develop the platform in a co-produced way enriched by the experiences of people who use this service – including those with disabilities, life-limiting illnesses, additional needs and people who are carers, as well as the wider public.” – Lucy Watts MBE

Lucy’s leadership and insights were vital in development of MyWishes. She also spearheaded the development of the ‘postural care passport‘ tool built at the request of Samantha Chadwick who was working for NHS Wales as a children and young people physiotherapist.

“On our gravestone it’s not the data or birth or date of death that matters but the ‘dash’ in between”. – Lucy Watts MBE

A lasting impact

Lucy brought energy, innovation, leadership and value to the world of palliative care, for those with life-limiting illnesses and the wider health eco-system within the UK and beyond. Lucy’s death is a loss for all who knew her and for those who did not.

Why this conference is important

Modern day, communication technologies are changing the world. The way in which we live, the ways in which we plan for death and remember our loved one’s is increasingly moving into the digital realm. Health, social care and palliative care professionals need to adapt practice, policies and procedures to better support society with this ever-increasingly important area.

What to expect

The Digital Legacy Conference examines society’s attitudes and behaviours in relation to technology, end of life planning, death and bereavement. The conference’s goal is to empower palliative and end of life professionals to better understand this emerging space and adapt ways of working to embrace it.

Who is the Digital Legacy Conference for?

The Digital Legacy Conference is for those involved in care planning, social care, healthcare, palliative, hospice and bereavement professionals. It is also relevant for policy makers, technologists and academics working within this sector.

DNACPR software

CPR and DNACPR section live for all users in England, Scotland and Wales

What is CPR and DNACPR

CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. It is a treatment that can be given when you stop breathing (respiratory arrest) or your heart stops beating (cardiac arrest).

DNACPR stands for do not attempt cardiopulmonary resuscitation. DNACPR is sometimes called DNAR (do not attempt resuscitation) or DNR (do not resuscitate) but they all refer to the same thing. DNACPR means if your heart or breathing stops your healthcare team will not try to restart it.

Talking about CPR and DNACPR

Depending on the healthcare setting and your health, a General Practitioner, hospital doctor or senior nurse may offer to discuss your thoughts on CPR. There is also a more general desire to talk more openly about people’s wishes on where they want to die and their wishes around the last weeks or months of their lives. You might want to learn about this area before starting a conversation about it with a medical, health or social care professional.

*The information used in MyWishes CPR / DNACPR section was kindly provided by TalkCPR

CPR & DNACPR section on MyWishes

MyWishes now includes CPR and DNACPR information to help educate and empower the general public. This section falls within the Advance Care Planning feature. To learn more register for a free account or login to your account.

Once logged in, visit the Advance Care Plan section and navigate to the relevant section.

Once completed, it can be emailed or printed and provided to your GP or anyone involved with your care.
