The Committee will hold a single evidence session focusing on the report’s findings and on the actions being taken to address the issues raised in the report.
Evidence given by Dr Jane Collins, Chief Executive, Marie Curie, Professor Irene J Higginson, Director of Cicely Saunders Institute, King’s College London, and Professor Sir Mike Richards, Chief Inspector of Hospitals; Ben Gummer MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Care Quality, and Dr Martin McShane, Director for Long Term Conditions, NHS England (at 10.40am).
