In a nutshell: The government is expected to announce a new coalition to examine end-of-life care in response to the scrapping of the controversial Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP). The alliance will provide guidance on what needs to occur in place of the LCP and will work with end-of-life healthcare professionals, patients and families on what good care means. It will also consider how to implement recommendations around the accountability and responsibility of individual clinicians, out-of-hours decisions, nutrition and hydration and communication with the patient and their relatives or carers.
