Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Some 500,000 adults die in England every year but only 20 per cent get their wish to die at home. While institutional death is now the norm, quality varies with 21 per cent of care homes and hospitals failing to meet minimum standards on dignity and privacy. The forthcoming end-of-life strategy is expected to guarantee choice, consistent high quality and equity.
