Public Health England and the National Council for Palliative Care published a report into the workforce providing palliative care in September 2014. The key finding from the report is that the proportion of nurses working in palliative care aged over 50 continues to increase, potentially paving the way for a gap in palliative care nursing provision unless further work is undertaken to understand the reasons behind the aging workforce.  It should be noted that the report is based on survey data and the response rate was 47%.
