One Chance to get it right: improving people’s experience of care in the last few days and hours of life

Published: June 2014

In July 2013, the findings from an independent review led by Baroness Neuberger into the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) were published. The report highlighted failings in the implementation of the LCP and recommended that the Government replace it with individual care plans by 14 July 2014.

On 26 June 2014, the Leadership Alliance for the Care of Dying People (LACDP) which included statutory, regulatory and voluntary organisations published One Chance to Get it Right. This report sets out a new approach to care of the dying in England, based on the needs and wishes of the person and those close to them. It identifies five Priorities for Care as the new basis for caring for someone at the end of their life.
