On 6th October news is announced that the UK's end of life care is the 'best in the world'. This is great timing with Hospice Care Week - where St Mary's
is supporting an annual awareness-raising week to raise the profile of hospice care across the UK #hospicecareweek
In a report by the Economist Intelligence Unit the table ranks the UK as the highest. The rankings were worked out following assessments for the quality
of the hospitals and hospice environments, staffing numbers and skills, affordability of care and quality of care. Report author Annie Pannelay said:
"The UK is an acknowledged leader in palliative care.
That reflects its comprehensive strategy towards the issue as well as the improvements that are being made." Find out more about UK's end of life
