Report developed for Sue Ryder by Demos exploring the quality of the patient experience of end of life care services, and what can be done to improve this journey through the different fields of health and social care from the patient's perspective. Many people receive care of varying quality, often characterised by delays, a lack of information and insufficient consideration given to the wishes of the patient and their families. Early diagnosis, a high level of personalisation and ongoing seamless support are crucial to delivering a good service and reducing inequalities in end of life care.
