  • Barriers to palliative care

    Barriers to palliative care

    1.07.18 People with terminal illnesses and life-limiting conditions, especially dementia, heart failure and neurological conditions, are confronted with a variety of barriers in accessing hospice and palliative care in Wales. That is the verdict of an inquiry report launched this week by the cross-party group on hospices and palliative care in the Welsh Assembly. At least 6,000 people with life-limiting and terminal conditions are not getting the expert care they need, say the Assembly members, who found that people were denied access based on diagnosis, age and where they lived. They found that those with a diagnosis like dementia were referred for end of life care in smaller numbers and at a later stage than people with a cancer diagnosis. People aged over 85 living in a care home often struggled to get the right support. GP shortages and misunderstandings about the support available among professionals and the public are among the factors blamed in the report.

  • New health and care secretary Matt Hancock

    New health and care secretary Matt Hancock

    17.07.18 Alzheimer’s Society welcomed the appointment last week of Matt Hancock as the new secretary of state for health and social care, replacing Jeremy Hunt who has been made foreign secretary. Hancock, who was previously culture secretary, had already shown his commitment to dementia care by becoming a dementia friend, Alzheimer’s Society said. Chief executive Jeremy Hughes said the Society looked to Hancock to “deliver real change for people with dementia who, for too long, have been treated as second class citizens by our health and social care system.”
