TV: Dispatches on end of life care

Dispatches: Secret NHS Diaries

Channel 4, Friday 4th March 2011, 2am-2.50am, or available now on 4oD

“The NHS is there to make our final days as dignified and pain-free as possible. But as a devastating health service ombudsman report has shown, the reality can be very different.

For the first time, Dispatches has given three people cameras to film the last weeks of their lives, at home, in a care home, and in hospital. Their experiences provide a unique insight into the gap between what we hope for compared with the painful reality of dying.”
