500,000 people die every year in the UK, and the number is rising. GPs and the primary care team play a pivotal role in the delivery of palliative and end of life care (PEOLC) to all patients regardless of their age and medical condition. As GPs, we deliver PEOLC with limited time resource and in the context of increasing demands to avoid hospital admissions as people near the end of their lives. Although we work alongside specialist palliative care services, these can be variable in terms of both availability and type of service provision. GPs often express a desire for more training and expertise in this area.
