This chapter presents the 2004 foreword to the third edition of the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine. Here, Cicely Saunders gathers up much of these influences and thoughts about development touched on in so many of her later writings. This chapter is a good reading for anyone new to and learning about the field of palliative care and the mode of its development. Characteristically, she gives the final word to a patient: ‘Loneliness is not so much a matter of being alone as of not belonging’.

Keywords:   Oxford University, palliative care development, palliative medicine, loneliness, belonging
