NCPC conference offers first in-depth look at Government’s End of Life Care Commitment

13 January 2017
The first event looking in depth at the National Commitment on end of life care is taking place on March 10.

 Getting Real About the National Commitment, organised by the National Council for Palliative Care, brings together experts from palliative, social and medical care, and is the first event looking in depth at how the National Commitment will change end of life care for everyone in England.

There will be speakers, workshops and a panel session asking how the medical, social care and voluntary sectors can ensure that the National Commitment will make a real, positive change to end of life care.

Claire Henry, Chief Executive of the NCPC, said “This will be a fantastic opportunity for people to really dig into what the National Commitment will mean in practice. It isn’t only the first event to do so: it also offers a range of speakers and workshops to discuss the agenda on how the National Commitment moves forward.

“We were pleased when the Government made the National Commitment on End of Life Care last year, but now we need to see how it is going to work in practice. We have put this event together because the National Commitment is going to make a difference to everyone, and it’s essential that we all understand both the challenges and the opportunities.”
