National Council for Palliative Care Death and Dying April 2017 Survey

Survey of UK adults on behalf of the NCPC to explore public perceptions on death and dying to support communications during Death Matters Awareness Week 2017.

  • There is a willingness among the public to support their community in death matters, with three quarters (74%) of British adults saying they would offer practical help to friends or neighbours dealing with dying, death and bereavement.
  • Three in five (61%) British adults say they would be comfortable giving a pain-relief injection to someone dying at home after receiving training, and with doctor or nurse supervision the first few times.
