End of life care leaflets

Care in the last days of life

Choosing the right term for all situations, such as loved one, relative, partner, friend etc is difficult. In order to make this leaflet as easy to read as possible we have chosen the term ‘relative’ but the leaflet is intended for anyone with a connection to the patient.

Death is a sensitive subject and one that many people are not comfortable discussing. This leaflet will give you some information about questions that we are frequently asked.

We hope that you will find it useful during this difficult time.


Because of the length of this leaflet, it is available as a digital download only.
