This report marks the start of a programme of work by many partners. A better understanding of the nation's changing demographics, of the needs of individual ethnic and cultural groups and of the types of services which will best meet their end of life care needs must be early outputs from the partnership. There are many areas which researchers will investigate further and many opportunities for service providers to work together with local communities to develop care which is sensitive and responsive to their needs as well as on a scale which will be needed for the large numbers of people who could benefit
In terms of access to palliative and end of life care, several authors reported that Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups had lower access to palliative and end of life care services when compared to White British people.
