Answered by: Shona Robison 18 April 2017
The Scottish Government is working with a wide range of stakeholders to take forward a £3.5million programme of work to achieve the ten commitments set out in the Strategic Framework for Action on Palliative and End of Life Care (SFA).
The National Implementation Advisory Group (NIAG), which includes representatives from health, social care, independent and third sectors, supports and advises on the implementation of the SFA and improvement actions at both local and national levels.
