End of life care

Death and dying are inevitable. The quality and accessibility of this care will affect all of us. The needs of people of all ages who are living with dying, death and bereavement, their families, carers and communities, must be addressed, taking into account their priorities, preferences and wishes.  Personalised care at end of life will result in a better experience, tailored around what really matters to the person, and more sustainable NHS services.
