Delivering High Quality End of Life Care for People Who Have a Learning Disability

NHS England, 2017 ‘top tips’ guide aims to support commissioners, providers and clinicians to reduce inequalities in palliative and end of life for people with a learning disability, focusing on ‘The Ambitions for Palliative and End of Life Care’.

These six ambitions provide a framework for national and local health and care system leaders to take action to improve palliative and end of life care. Developed by 27 organisations across the palliative and end of life care system, these ambitions set out what high quality palliative and end of life care looks like. The ambitions call on leaders from every part of the health and care system, and the wider community, to put the framework into practice.
