The End of Life Care Profiles data update for December 2017 has been published by Public Health England (PHE).
The profiles are designed to improve the availability and accessibility of information around end of life care. The data are presented in an interactive tool that allow users to view and analyse them in a user-friendly format.
The profiles provide a snapshot overview of end of life care at various geographies. They are intended to help local government and health services to improve care at the end of life.
This update contains:
- place of death indicators (hospital, home, care home, hospice and other places by age)
- underlying cause of death indicators (cancer, respiratory disease and circulatory disease by age)
These indicators are presented for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships, Strategic Clinical Networks and Regions.
