New guidelines on end of life care published by NICE

"NICE urges doctors to treat dying patients as individuals," BBC News reports. The headline is prompted by the publication of new guidelines from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) on end of life care.

The guidelines are designed to replace the controversial Liverpool Care Pathway, which was phased out in 2014.
