Care planning for the last days of life

Gloucestershire’s Shared Care Record for the expected last days of life launched 15 January 2015, and is available here.

The Record is designed to support best possible clinical care at the end of life across the county. It can be used collaboratively by healthcare professionals in all care settings and should be shared with the patient and their carers.

Its development was informed by a six-month, clinically-led pilot following the demise of the Liverpool Care Pathway. It is based around the five principles of good practice outlined in the One Chance to Get it Right report issued by the Leadership Alliance for the Care of Dying People, available here.
