ESNEFT now has a new end of life care strategy. It gives us an opportunity to refocus our efforts and improve end of life care for our patients and those important to them.
The strategy focuses on the care of people who are approaching the end of their life, which means they are likely to die within the next 12 months. It includes care of both the patient and their loved ones when death is imminent and is expected within a few hours or days.
Please let us know if you would like to find out more.
This strategy builds further on the “Ambitions for Palliative and End of Life Care: A national framework” and is an opportunity for us to refocus our efforts and improve end of life care for our patients and those important to them.
The Trust’s philosophy is that ‘Time Matters’ and that we must reduce unnecessary stress of navigating the system and free up time to focus on what matters most. It is clear that how we care for the dying is an indicator of how we care for all sick and vulnerable people.
Our patients and those important to them, should be at the centre of everything we do and we recognise that end of life care is everyone’s responsibility.
