£6.4 million of funding for specialist end-of-life care

A £6.4 million funding package to support hospices and provide palliative care across Wales has been announced by the Health Minister Mark Drakeford today.

The new funding for hospices and health boards in 2014-15 will ensure specialist consultant, nurse and other health support for palliative care is available in all parts of the country.

Palliative care focuses on relieving and preventing the suffering of patients, including those nearing the end of their life. Health professionals – including doctors, nurses, psychologists and social workers – work together to relieve suffering in all areas of a patient’s life.
