Adult Palliative & End of Life Care Plan
Palliative and end of life care and support is everybody’s business. All of us will at some point have a friend, a colleague or a family member who will have a progressive and/or advanced condition that is life limiting or life shortening. Though we have become very good at prolonging life, we still cannot prevent death. However, there are many ways we can improve people’s experience of death, dying and bereavement.
We are committed to delivering the best palliative and end of life care and support we can. This plan reflects some of what is already delivered and underway in Angus and helps us to concentrate on areas we need to develop further. An evolving and collaborative Action Plan is being developed that describes how and when the improvements linked to the themes in the plan will be delivered and how we will know that this the plan has made a difference.
We would like to thank all those who have contributed to the development of this plan. This includes members of the public, people who provide care and support, and most importantly people with lived experience of palliative and end of life care.
