Social care at the end of life
Macmillan is campaigning for free social care at the end of life so more people with cancer can choose to die at home. The cross-party committee for the draft Care and Support Bill has supported this policy, calling for it to be introduced 'at the earliest opportunity' which is great news. We will continue to campaign for government commitment to implementing free social care at the end of life by the end of this parliament in 2015.
