In a nutshell: ‘Open to all? Meeting the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people nearing the end of life’, provides a unique insight into perceptions of end of life care for the 22,000 LGB&T people who die each year. Many LGB&T people do not feel that end of life care services are open to them and are concerned that they will face discrimination and a lack of understanding from health and social care providers when they are dying. The report highlights that older LGB&T people may face particular problems, especially if they have not felt able to be open about their identity previously.
