This document provides information on hospice care and is part of the Scottish national care standards.

It has been developed from the point of view of the service user and describes what individuals can expect from the service provider. It focuses on the quality of life that the service user experiences and applies to people using all aspects of hospice services (in-patient care, day care, home care and out-patient care) unless the standard is inappropriate for that aspect.
