An independent review into the funding of palliative care in England, The Palliative Care Funding Review (PCFR), recommended in 2011 that 'once a patient reaches the end of life stage, and is put on the end of life locality register, all health and social care should be funded by the state and free at the point of delivery' (Hughes-Hallett et al, 2011). This recommendation was supported by the Commission on Funding of Care and Support (2011).
