End of life care: strengthening choice

End of life care: strengthening choice All-Party Parliamentary Group for Children Who Need Palliative Care has been examining the extent to which the government is meeting its end of life care choice commitment to babies, children and young-people with life-limiting conditions and their families.  

Despite the commitment – which outlines six ways ministers believe that people approaching the end of their lives should be supported – the APPG has heard evidence from young people, families, services and professionals that the quality of palliative care children and families can access is patchy and depends on where in England they live.
