The end of life care strategy published in July 2008 included a commitment to publish quality markers for end of life care.

This was a response to the SHA Pathway Chairs for the NHS Next Stage Review, who identified the need for a national approach in order to raise the quality of care for people at the end of life. The SHA Pathway Chairs helped produce the consultation draft which was published in November 2008. This publication reflects the comments we received through the consultation.
