Best Practice in care coordination for palliative and end of life care services: information for commissioners

Not yet rated

Following on from a desktop review carried out by NHS England, The National Council for Palliative Care (NCPC) reviewed 66 palliative and end of life care co-ordination systems with the aim of identifying best practice systems for providing effective care coordination in this area of care. The objective was then to develop helpful information for commissioners in designing and contracting optimal care coordination systems for their local areas.

This information resource is for commissioners within local authorities, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), hospices, and other voluntary sector organisations. It provides a step-by-step practical approach to support commissioners to plan, design, commission and evaluate optimal end of life care coordination systems for their local areas.
