The route to success in end of life care – achieving quality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people

It has been developed following consultation with stakeholders at a series of discussion groups held around the country.

  • Encourage LGBT people to be confident in being open about their relationships and needs
  • Guide organisations and people within them to have an LGBT friendly culture and
  • Highlight constructive key messages for everyone to act on.
