In a nutshell: Coming three years on from the Government’s End of Life Care Strategy, “No Dress Rehearsals” looks at how end of life care is measuring up, and finds that despite many examples of excellent end of life care there remain serious cases of neglect and ill-treatment and many people are not getting their end of life wishes met. The NCPC and the Dying Matters Coalition have requested a new deal is needed for people who are dying to ensure they are treated well and receive high quality care and support at the end of their lives.
