All five major parties have made commitments in their manifestos to improve care for people approaching the end of their lives if they enter Government. As seven national charities working together to raise the profile of the severe challenges facing people trying to access quality end of life care services, we welcome the recognition in the five UK-wide political party manifestos that end of life care needs to improve.

Each party’s commitments to end of life care are outlined in this document. The full political party manifestos can be accessed through the hyperlinks, found in the document, on the relevant party’s name.
