End-of-life care - a human right

I'm feeling encouraged today to see that GPs in the UK are recognizing the need for good, respectful palliative and end-of-life care.
I have worked in end-of-life care for some time, as part of my wider practice. I have seen that the wishes and desires of people nearing their death must be recognized and attended to, as far as possible. It helps maintain their humanity right to the end, and helps to give their life meaning.
