The end of life care profiles data update for February 2019 has been published by Public Health England (PHE).
This version includes two updated indicators with 2018 data for clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), local authorities (LAs) and higher geographies:
- care home beds per 100 people aged 75 and older, and
- nursing home beds per 100 people aged 75 and older
The end of life care profiles are designed to improve the availability and accessibility of information around end of life care. The data is presented in an interactive tool that allows users to view and analyse it in a user-friendly format.
The profiles provide a snapshot overview of end of life care across England. They are intended to help local government and health services to improve care at the end of life.
