Daffodil Standards for end of life care
Published: 25 February, 2019
GP surgeries will now be able to display a ‘daffodil mark’ as a sign of commitment to improving end of life care, as part of a new partnership between the Royal College of GPs and the terminal illness charity Marie Curie.
The Daffodil Standards are a blend of quality statements, evidence-based tools, reflective learning exercises and quality improvement steps. They offer a structure to enable practices to be proactive organisations in which continuous learning and quality improvement steps are an integral part of caring for people affected by Advanced Serious Illness and End of Life Care.
The Standards have already been recognised by the new Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) on end of life care and the CQC and don’t replace any existing standards, formal accreditations or training programmes in general practice. They are also free to sign up to.
