National Palliative and End of Life Care Programme

National Palliative and End of Life Care Programme

The National Palliative and End of Life care Programme provides national leadership and support and acts as a forum to drive forward change and oversee health boards’ efforts to deliver the Welsh Government’s vision for improving end of life care in Wales.

Our aim is for people in Wales to have a healthy, realistic approach to dying, and to be able to plan appropriately for the event. 

We want people to be able to end their days in the location of their choice – be that home, hospital or hospice and we want them to have access to high quality care wherever they live and die, whatever their underlying disease or disability.

Our work is informed by the Quality Statement for Palliative and End of Life Care and we are working with stakeholders to implement and deliver this work.
