People deserve a good death
In the feature, published in the Guardian's Professional section, Eve writes that the gap between what people want when they are dying and what they get "remains huge".
She goes on: "Every minute in the UK someone dies. That's over half a million people a year, but many of us are still not receiving good end-of-life care or having our dying wishes met. This can cause unnecessary pain and suffering."
The government's first priority, Eve says, should be to shift funds and investment out of hospitals and into community-based services. She also wants to see more done 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. End of life care leadership should also be a top priority, she says.
