Death, dying and devolution | The University of Bath Institute for Policy Research
The articles in this collection cover what happens before someone dies, including issues around palliative care and support for carers; what happens at death, including issues around the proper regulation of funerals and public financial support for the bereaved; and what happens to those who are left behind, including emotional support for those who have been bereaved and issues around managing the estates of those who have died.
The report reviews policy areas associated with death, dying and bereavement within the context of devolution. It focuses on the national and regional delegation of power, resources and authority across the UK and the implications of this for those who are dying, dead, or bereaved as well as those tasked with organising and running the services that support these groups of people.
