Health: End of Life Care
House of Lords
Earl Howe (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Quality), Health; Conservative)
We are committed to moving towards a national choice offer to support people's preferences about the manner of their death.
A review of progress in delivering the initiatives set out in the End of Life Care Strategy, which are improving quality and choice in end of life and palliative care, will be held during 2013. This will inform us about when a right to choose to die at home, including at a care home, might feasibly be introduced. We are currently considering how and when this review might best be undertaken.
