Neglected

Post by Admin

Thousands of people with terminal illnesses are not receiving suitable care, a new report has revealed.

Frontline clinicians claim a lack of coordination between care teams, insufficient funding for services and “time-poor” staff are barriers to providing suitable end-of-life care.

A new report from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), commissioned by the charity Marie Curie, also claims a shortage of specialist palliative care services and difficulty in accessing social care are major barriers to delivering adequate provision.

Researchers revealed that people with illnesses other than cancer, people aged over 85, people in deprived areas and minority ethnic groups are the main social groups missing out.

Marie Curie is now calling for a radical rethink in the way palliative care is delivered.
