End of Life Care Patient Charter
"Caring for people nearing the end of their lives is part of the core business of General Practice… The GP and the primary care team occupy a central role in the delivery of end of life care in the community. This role is greatly valued by patients and remains pivotal to the effective provision of all other care. The importance of the holistic role of the family doctor is poised to come into its own in a way never previously encountered… This strategy affirms the College’s commitment to promote excellence in end of life care."
