The quality of end-of-life care for the terminally ill "is often hit and miss" and "a wake up call" a charity has said:
These widespread and unacceptable inequalities show how accessing good quality end-of-life care is often hit or miss. But this is a lottery we can't allow to continue.
A person's condition, location or ethnicity should not prevent them from having a say in the care they receive at the end of life.
Death and the memories it leaves behind, particularly of a loved one's last days, affects us all, which is why the inequalities revealed in this report represent a 'wake up' call that cannot be ignored
