MPs call for free end-of-life care

Everyone should have access to free social care at the end of life, a report by MPs has recommended.

The report, by the Commons Health Committee, said there was "unacceptable variation" in the care received by people in England.

It also called for round-the-clock access to specialist palliative care and sustainable long-term funding for hospices.

Chris Buckler reports.
