My pledge is to support and work with teams throughout the Trust and local health economy to continuously improve End of Life Care for our patients and their loved ones.

– Increase of palliative care service to 6 days per week

– Implementation of end of life magnets to annotate patients on End of Life individualized care plan/anticipated last days of life

– End of Life Trust newsletter to share the learning and raise awareness of resources

– Collaboration with two local CCGs to ensure uniform assessments for fast track
