Development of Plan Adult Palliative and End of Life Care
Angus Health & Social Care Partnership are developing a plan for Adult Palliative and End of Life Care. The plan that will set out our ambitions for adult palliative and end of life care in Angus. It will explore the goals and challenges and identify improvements that will enable people in Angus to receive services and support that respond to their individual palliative and end of life care needs and those of their families and carers. You can help develop this plan by giving feedback on what you think good palliative and end of life care looks like, what we are currently doing well and what we could do better or differently.
