“Hiding who I am” The reality of end of life care for LGBT people

Everyone should have the right to
high-quality palliative care when they
have a terminal illness, regardless of
their condition, where they live, or their
personal circumstances. The UK has
been ranked as the best country in the
world for the quality of palliative care
on offer here. However, access to this
care is patchy. One in four people who
need palliative care miss out each year.
LGBT people experience significant
barriers to getting palliative care when
they need it. This report explores why.
