Share your views on adult community-based specialist palliative care in North West London
Local people across North West London are being asked what is important to them as the NHS and its partners look to develop community-based specialist palliative care services for adults that deliver high quality care and excellent patient experience. This work forms part of a review of these services, being led by the North West London Integrated Care System (ICS), of which CLCH is a partner.
Robyn Doran, Borough Director for Brent Integrated Care Partnership who is leading on the review for the North West London ICS, said “We have published an Issues Paper that sets out the reasons why we are looking at community-based specialist palliative care for adults and want local people to tell us of their experiences so we can jointly agree what high quality, safe, equitable care looks like and just as important what excellent patient experience looks like.”
The review covers the London boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster.
By community based specialist palliative care, we are referring to settings where specialist level of palliative care is delivered that is not within a hospital or from a GP surgery. Examples include hospice beds, community specialist palliative care nursing team, hospice day and outpatient services, hospice@home (in patient’s own home).
