Answered By:

I recognise the importance of good quality end of life care for Londoners irrespective of where they live. I respect the role of Health and Wellbeing Boards in the London boroughs to work with partners to address priorities in Health and Wellbeing Strategies informed by the local needs and health inequalities identified in their local Joint Strategic Needs Assessments.
