End of life care profiles for clinical commissioning groups
These profiles, launched in April 2014 and updated in July 2015 with new data, draw together a wide range of information to give an overview of variations in cause and place of death, by age and sex, for each clinical commissioning group (CCG) in England.
The profiles will help commissioners and providers of end of life care get a clearer picture of the end of life care needs of their local populations. They will help with the planning and delivery of services and will support drives locally towards improving end of life care.
There are 170 indicators, presented in four separate tools, using Office for National Statistics mortality data from 2011 to 2013. The cause of death (any mention) tool gives breakdowns for selected causes of death where they were recorded as the underlying cause OR a contributory cause.
Data can be viewed in the following ways:
- interactive map showing a single indicator and enabling comparison with CCGs across England
- spine chart showing multiple indicators for each CCG comparing to the minimum, maximum and average values for England
