New Report Offers ‘Blueprint’ for Future Choice in End of Life Care

(Nursing Times) – The report – called What’s important to me: A review of Choice in End of Life Care – offers a blueprint for how greater choice in end of life can be achieved. It was published today by a review board chaired by Claire Henry, chief executive of the National Council for Palliative Care. To enable the national choice offer, it called for a new right in the NHS Constitution for everyone to be offered choice in the end of life care, and for these choices and preferences to be recorded in a personal plan of care.
