Providing high quality end of life care that is truly centred around the needs of the individual and their loved ones is an important outcome to aim for. Given the complexity of ensuring all the patient’s needs are met, wherever possible, requires all the agencies to work together.
The ‘Ambitions for Palliative and End of Life Care: A national framework for local action 2015-2020’, stresses how we must all work together to find new ways of delivering better care to make a difference. The role of commissioners in collaborative working continues to be fundamental in making progress in end of life care.
The toolkit is aimed at being a useful resource which is complimentary to the overall national strategic direction, whilst aiming to support commissioners ‘commission high quality end of life care’ and to be complimentary to their local Sustainable Transformation Plans.
