NHS England is working with the government and partners from across the health and care system to improve palliative and end of life care across the country.
NHS England is a member of the National Palliative and End of Life Care Partnership, and jointly developed the system-wide Ambitions for palliative and end of life care: a national framework for local action 2015-20 (Ambitions framework).
NHS England is also working with the government and partners across the health and care system to deliver the End of Life Care Commitment. The government made a six-point commitment, which amplifies, in particular, the first Ambition: each person is seen as an individual.
In September 2017, the government published a One Year On Report that summarises the progress made in implementing the End of Life Care Commitment after one year.
