One consequence of a process like the evolution of palliative care is that it may reveal patterns of inequality and injustice. This chapter explores that theme. It does so by reflecting on aspects of Cicely Saunders' own experience and places these in the wider context of palliative care development. Throughout, it is the voices of patients and families that echo in the memory and which have done so much to stimulate improvements in care at the end of life.

Keywords:   palliative care development, inequality, patients, family
