You’ve got a (small) opportunity to fill in a survey about palliative care in NSW, until December 15, this year (2017).

The NSW government has promised to spend an extra $100 million over the next four years for community-based palliative care services, on top of the money it already spends.

“We are listening carefully to the community’s views on where and how palliative care services can be improved so that we have a strong plan for the future,” said Port Macquarie MP and NSW Parliamentary Secretary for Regional and Rural Health, Leslie Williams.

Mrs Williams has promised answers from the survey and feedback from community consultation done earlier this year will inform a new palliative and end-of-life care policy in NSW.

“Getting the public’s feedback on palliative care priorities is vital if we are to produce better outcomes for everyone when the inevitable occurs. The survey will only take about 10 minutes so I strongly urge everyone to take this opportunity to have their say,” Mrs Williams said.
