New scheme aims to make care of seriously ill and dying more compassionate

Health and Social Care Correspondent

xclusive: From tomorrow, GP surgeries across the UK will be able to display a daffodil mark – a sign that they will be using new standards for the care of the terminally ill. Developed by the Royal College of GPs and the charity, Marie Curie, it will encourage GPs and practice staff to identify those at the end of life or with life-limiting illnesses early and find out what they want. And it takes into account carers both before and after the death of their loved one.
