Dr Fliss Murtagh presents evidence at parliamentary session on end of life care

Posted on 29/01/2015

Parliament-logo_140x180In June 2014 the Department of Health announced a new approach for those caring for dying people in England during the last days of their life.  The approach focuses on achieving five Priorities of Care that should be applied whenever and wherever someone is dying, whether in hospital, a hospice, their own home or another location. Last Tuesday 20th January, Dr Fliss Murtagh presented evidence at a parliamentary Health Committee meeting about the implementation of this care plan, alongside Simon Chapman of the National Council for Palliative Care and Professor Mike Richards of the Care Quality Commission. Dr Murtagh answered questions from health professionals and MP’s regarding patient priorities, the importance of responding to place of death preferences and the need for further funding to support co-ordinated and continuous palliative care in the community.
