Government needs to make good death a priority

Eve Richardson, chief executive of the National Council for Palliative Care and the Dying Matters coalition, writes in the Guardian today that the government needs to make a good death a priority. To do this, she says, we need to shift investment towards community-based services, including day and night end-of-life support; we need to support staff working across health, social care and housing to improve their confidence in having sensitive conversations about people's end-of-life wishes; and there needs to be a leader for end-of-life care so that it becomes a priority Do you agree? What do you think would improve end of life care in the UK today? Read the feature: http://www.dyingmatters.org/news/people-deserve-good-death
