Transforming end of life care

NHS West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group is one of a number of organisations which have come together to help transform palliative and end of life care.

The Strategic Collaborative Cheshire (SCC) consists of clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), NHS hospital and community trusts, hospices, councils, strategic clinical networks, The University of Chester and key voluntary sector organisations such as The End of Life Partnership, Macmillan Cancer Support and Carers Trust For All.

The SCC has recently launched ‘A Collaborative Plan for Palliative and End of Life Care’ in Cheshire, which sets out a collaborative approach across health and social care providers and the third sector, placing patients at the centre of care.

The views of community members and health and social care professionals were sought to inform and shape the development of the plan and ensure that the process was as inclusive as possible.

Salli Jeynes, CEO of The End of Life Partnership and Chair of the SCC, said “We are all very proud to be part of this innovative collaborative. We believe that by working together we will create real and lasting improvements to end of life experience and care, for the people of Cheshire”

Lesley Hilton, a commissioner for West Cheshire CCG, added: “We are committed to working as part of the collaborative to improve end of life experience and care. There is so much that can be achieved by sharing knowledge, expertise and passion to achieve collective goals."
