UK provides world class end of life care

Printer-friendly version

A recent study by The Economist Intelligence Unit ranks the UK's palliative care service first out of 80 countries. The 2015 Quality of Death Index assesses countries on factors such as hospital environment and quality and affordability of care.

Andrea Williams says: "We are blessed to live in a country that has good end of life care. We must not become complacent but continue to invest and to resist any attempt to liberalise the law on assisted suicide."
