England’s health watchdog has put forward new draft guidance to improve the care of adults in their last few days of life.

It comes after concerns that misuse of the previous system – the Liverpool Care Pathway – led to some patients being deprived of water and food.

The guidelines encourage staff to involve patients and relatives in decisions and to communicate well.

The Department of Health and charities welcomed the move.
