Palliative and end of life care

This information is for health and social care professionals.

Because MND can be rapidly progressive, it is important that people with the condition are offered referral to specialist palliative care services at an appropriate time.

People with MND should also be encouraged to talk through options for their care and their preferences for end of life, before the need is urgent or before they find it too difficult or tiring to communicate.
