The end of life care profiles data update for July 2019 has been published by Public Health England (PHE).
This version includes 8 updated indicators with 2017 data for clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and higher geographies:
- percentage of deaths in usual place of residence (all ages, 0 to 64 years, 65 to 74 years, 75 to 84 years, 85 years and over)
- percentage of deaths in usual place of residence by underlying cause of death (cancer, circulatory disease, respiratory disease)
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.
