Abstract

The UK has been given first place in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s (EIU) 2015 Quality of Death Index, which ranks palliative care across the world. This is the second time in a row that the UK has taken out the top spot – it topped the last index in 2010. The report attributes the UK’s success to its comprehensive national policies, the integration of palliative care into the NHS, a strong hospice movement and deep community engagement.
