As reported, a majority of the families prefer their dying children to be at home in their last moments; nevertheless, of these about two-thirds are likely to change their mind if sufficient support is not forthcoming at home. As Prof. Gillian Leng has rightly stated hospital is NOT always the best place for a dying child. However, it is to be presumed that the Draft standards have taken into account the enormous additional expenditure which is likely to be incurred in providing round-the-clock homecare and medical access.
