Local health and care plans for dying people

Hospice UK has published A low priority? How local health and care plans overlook the needs of dying people.  This report examines the strategic priority given to people with palliative and end of life care needs by local statutory structures in England.  Freedom of Information requests were sent to all Health and Wellbeing Boards and CCGs in England.  The findings show a significant inconsistency in the consideration of adults and children with palliative care needs in health and care planning.
