Delivering improvements to end of care is a key priority for this Government and end of life care is an important part of the proposals which are helping to shape the long-term plan for National Health Service.

NHS England is now considering the many responses and submissions it has received, including those from end of life care charities, as part of the listening exercise it held to help develop and refine policy proposals for inclusion in the plan. NHS England will continue working with key stakeholders to test the plan before its publication in November 2018.
