This document is primarily aimed to advise those commissioning end of life care. It is designed to be used as a resource for end of life care commissioners to review their existing services and to use those parts that are most relevant or needed locally. It may also assist commissioners who are working together to commission their end of life care specialist palliative services and developing a jointly agreed specification.
