In a nutshell: Specialist palliative care community services are leading to more people being able to die at home, according to a major new report out today by the National Council for Palliative Care and the National End of Life Care Intelligence Network. Latest figures show that a third of those receiving specialist palliative care in 2010/11 died at home, compared with just one in five nationally. This is the third successive year that the proportion of deaths at home has increased for people using community specialist palliative care services.
