Take part in a new inquiry into inequalities and access to hospice and palliative care
The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Hospice & Palliative Care has launched an inquiry into tackling inequality and improving access to hospice and palliative care, and is inviting people to submit written evidence.
The call for evidence is focused on five key questions:
- What are the experiences of people and their families who have been unable to access hospice and palliative care, and what barriers did they face?
- What are the factors that lead to unequal access to hospice and palliative care?
- What actions are palliative care providers, commissioners and policy makers taking to improve access to hospice and palliative care?
- What barriers do palliative care providers, commissioners and policy makers face in improving access to appropriate services?
- What national, regional and local levers would support improving access to hospice and palliative care?
To submit evidence, please send an electronic copy of your submission to: [email protected] by Monday 30 April 2018. The APPG will consider the written responses and use them to shape oral evidence sessions over the course of the year.
Fabian Hamilton MP and Baroness Finlay, the co-chairs of the APPG, have written an article which provides some further background to the inquiry.
