Collection: Towards the end of life

If you have cancer that can’t be cured, you may be referred to palliative care or supportive care. These services are available at any point during your treatment or care. They are not just for people at the end of their life. They provide specialist care which aims to prevent and manage complex symptoms. They also provide practical and spiritual support, and support family members. They aim to help people live as well as possible for as long as possible.

You may have lots of questions and concerns. We have a booklet explaining end of life care which explains what to expect, and how to get the care and support you need. We also have information explaining how different symptoms are managed. You can also read our information about palliative care on our website.

Our publications are all free of charge. Select what you want and click “add to basket”. You can also order by calling 0808 801 0707, or emailing

This can be a lot to take in. Our specialist nurses on our free Support Line can answer your questions and provide support.
