Motion text

That this House notes with concern a recent report by Marie Curie which predicts a 42 per cent increase in demand for end-of-life care by 2040; acknowledges the lack of funding for palliative care in the UK; recognises the crucial role end-of-life care has played during the covid-19 pandemic; understands that palliative care services are under significant strain and as a result almost 15,000 people have died outside of hospital without the necessary support during the covid-19 outbreak; further recognises the continual increase in cost to provide these vital services; and therefore calls on the Government to bring forward plans to this House that resolves the social care crisis and provides sustainable funding for the palliative care sector.
