Funds to improve end-of-life care

  • Comment
A new £1m programme to improve end-of-life care has been set up by the King’s Fund and the Department of Health.

Nurse-led teams in 19 trusts and a prison will look at how to improve the environment for dying patients, their relatives and staff. Projects will provide more palliative care beds and better visitor facilities, such as bereavement suites and mortuary viewing facilities.

Sarah Waller, nurse and programme director for the Kings Fund’s enhancing the healing environment programme, said: ‘Care does not end when someone dies. This programme helps to focus the work of both clinicians and estates colleagues.’
