The UK has a variety of resources for children with life-limiting conditions that are perhaps unrivalled in the world. This is both good and bad. It offers the potential for children and their families to have choices about the location of their care. On the other hand, a multiplicity of agencies brings with it the risk of miscommunication and internecine strife. This chapter summarizes ideal models of palliative care, defining the four categories of life-limiting conditions in childhood and the role of paediatric palliative medicine specialists.
