Dying well wherever you are and whatever your background or circumstances are fundamental aspects of human dignity. As part of a compassionate humane society, we need to do everything we can to make sure that people who are facing their last months, weeks and days of life receive the best possible palliative and end of life care. Those who care for them, including their families, others important to them and staff around them, equally deserve this consideration and support.
NHS England has coproduced a number of resources focused on ensuring equality in end of life care.
