Terminally ill patient tells ITV News: I want to die at home – hospitals don’t care as much

As an audit found “unacceptable” variation in some aspects of end of life care in England, one terminally ill patient told ITV News that it is better for dying patients to be cared for at home or in hospices.

Kathleen Wickremer was diagnosed with cancer three years ago which has spread to her lungs and is now terminal. She cares deeply about being at home with her family for her final weeks, and says the prospect of dying in hospital makes her feel very sad.
