Patient Care, not just treatment
NHS England’s first strategy for end of life care in England, published in 2008, has succeeded in reversing the trend of increasing the proportion of deaths taking place in hospital. This revised & updated version of the Transforming end of life care in acute hospitals: The route to success ‘how to’ guide, published December 2015, marks another significant milestone to improve the quality & experience of care at end of life for patients and their families.  It offers practical advice & support for frontline clinicians & leaders for the work required to transform end of life care in acute hospitals.
