Improving advance care planning in Kent, Surrey and Sussex

This publication summarises the benefits of ACP, explores the current barriers to its greater uptake, and provides a wide range of recommendations to enable its greater use. Our publication endeavours to provide a clear and pragmatic guide as to how this can be achieved.
