End-of-Life care is care that helps people with an advanced, progressive, incurable illness to live as well as possible and enhance quality of life during their final days.
It enables the supportive and palliative needs of both the patient and their family to be identified and met throughout the last phase of life and into bereavement. It includes managing pain and other symptoms and providing psychological, social, spiritual and practical support.
End-of-Life care can be provided by different NHS and voluntary services, many of which you can be referred to by your GP. To find out which services can provide End-of-Life care, please click on the "End-of-Life Care" link below.
