Northern Ireland Hospice supports commitment for a new Palliative and End of Life Care Strategy

10 November 2021

Today Northern Ireland Hospice was one of 20 organisations who have written to Party Leaders calling for a commitment to develop new Palliative and End of Life Care Strategy for Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland is currently the only jurisdiction in the UK/Ireland that doesn’t have a palliative care strategy in place or hasn’t committed to developing one. It is estimated that 75% of the population would benefit from a palliative care approach before they die and we believe that those that need this help should be able to access it.

We’d love for you to support us and raise this issue with your local Councillors, MLAs and MPs to support the need for a new Palliative and End of Life Care Strategy for NI following the next Assembly election.
