Tell us how you support care homes to provide end of life care and make a difference today.

1 December 2016
Public Health England, the National Council for Palliative Care, Hospice UK and the Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Centre at Cardiff University are working together to find out how care homes are supported to deliver end of life care to residents.

Purpose: We are conducting a supplementary survey linked to the Minimum Data Set Survey for specialist palliative care providers that will increase our understanding of:

  • The current geographical spread of services provided by Specialist Palliative Care Units and hospices to adult care homes in England and Wales, and;
  • The level of clinical support, education and training provided by Specialist Palliative Care Units and hospices to adult care homes in England and Wales.
  • We need one response per person or team.

    The survey closes at 5pm on Monday 23rd January.

Results: The survey results will be published in Spring 2017 providing a baseline for future developments across this important area of care. Please go to to complete the survey
