NCPC - National Council for Palliative Care

At the National Council for Palliative Care our vision is that everyone who has palliative care needs or is approaching the end of life, dying or bereaved should receive the high quality care and support that they need and in the place they need it. We work with government, health and social care staff and people with personal experience to improve end of life care for all.

• We produce a range of publications, resources, conferences and learning and development programmes.
• We work with government, the NHS, the voluntary and private sectors to improve services, and shape future strategies and plans.
• We involve patients, carers and families in everything we do to ensure our work is informed by people with real experience.

By subscribing to NCPC you will support and help to develop our work to campaign and influence, so that everybody has the highest quality care and support in dying, death and bereavement. Together, we provide a strong voice on behalf of people providing and benefiting from end of life care services everywhere.
