Introduction & consent

About this survey

Thank you for taking part in this survey, funded by the Marie Curie Grant Evaluation programme, to understand the activities general practices undertake to sustain or improve the quality of end-of-life care.

This survey is directed at all UK-based general practices.

By completing this survey, you are helping understand existing efforts to improve the provision of end-of-life care in the UK. Results from the survey will be used by Marie Curie and the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) to identify exemplars of best practice, understand existing support needs, and determine how general practices can be supported to sustain and improve the quality of end-of-life care.

This survey is part of a wider project to evaluate the implementation of the Daffodil Standards in UK General Practice, based at the Marie Curie Research Centre at Cardiff University.



Who should complete this survey?

We recommend either the practice manager, a GP partner, or end-of-life lead completes the survey on behalf of the practice. Only one response should be submitted per practice/ branch/ partnership, but multiple staff members’ input may be needed to provide the information requested.

Please do what you can to answer as many questions as feasible. We really appreciate your support.


What are the Daffodil Standards?

The RCGP and Marie Curie UK General Practice Daffodil Standards for Advanced Serious Illness and End-of-Life Care provide a free, evidence-based framework to help practices self-assess and consistently offer the best end-of-life and bereavement care for patients and carers.

You can find out more about the Daffodil Standards, our survey, and the wider project being held at Cardiff University, here.
