End of Life Care Strategy: promoting high quality care for adults at the end of their life
This publication sets out a vision for giving people approaching the end of life more choice about where they would like to live and die.
The End of Life Care Strategy encompasses all adults with advanced, progressive illness and care given in all settings. The strategy has been developed by an expert advisory board chaired by Professor Mike Richards, National Cancer Director, and including key stakeholders from statutory health, social care, third sector organisations, professional and academic organisations. The strategy has been informed and shaped by the work on end of life care undertaken by strategic health authorities for the NHS Next Stage Review.
