Publisher: NHS National End of Life Care Programme
This practical implementation document aims to address end of life care needs in relation to lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) people, in order to improve quality of care. It has been developed following consultation with stakeholders at a series of discussion groups held around the country.
It aims to provide a practical guide for everyone working with LGBT people, and for LGBT people themselves, whether
giving or receiving end of life care. This guide is an invitation to:
Encourage LGBT people to be confident in being open about their relationships and needs
Guide organisations and people within them to have an LGBT friendly culture
Highlight constructive key messages for everyone to act on
