National End of Life Care Intelligence Network launched

18 May 2010

Today marks the arrival of an intelligence network and website which bring together data on where people die and what affects their care.

Commissioned by the National End of Life Care Programme (NEoLCP), the National End of Life Care Intelligence Network (NEoLCIN) will provide commissioners and providers with a firm evidence base for the delivery of high quality services for dying people and their loved ones. It will also provide a central resource for those researching end of life care in England.

The material on the website on launch day includes End of Life Care Profiles down to local authority areas. Over the next few weeks analytical reports and other material will be added to the website, which has been developed by the South West Public Health Observatory.

As well as centralising existing data from sources such as Hospital Episode Statistics and the Office for National Statistics, the network will commission its own information-gathering work where gaps are identified. It will work closely with the National Cancer Intelligence Network.
