A lack of suitable alternatives for the terminally ill means that more people than ever are dying in hospital, costing the NHS an average of £4,500 per person. An ageing population with multiple complex care needs looks set to put even great pressure on a system that is already under strain. In response to these trends, the Government’s “Commitment to End of Life Care” sets out six measures to allow patients to draw up their own care plan and make informed choices. Join us for the Palliative Care Conference where expert speakers from across the health and social care sectors will discuss how we can deliver services that are both compassionate and high quality. Expect to hear from Louise Corson, end of life care programme manager for NHS England, and Dr Jane Collins, chief executive of Marie Curie.
