Hospital Use and Cancer Treatment at the End of Life, for People Dying due to Cancer

3rd March 2020

An important component of good personalised care is to ensure that advance-planning and coordination of care at the end of life occurs as a shared decision-making process between an individual and their care providers. The NHS Long Term Plan aims to improve personalised care at the end of life (EoL), reducing emergency admissions and enabling more people to die in their location of choice.

The Transforming Cancer Services Team in partnership with the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service at Public Health England, has produced an online dashboard to describe hospital use and cancer treatment in the last 90 days of life for those diagnosed with cancer in London.

The dashboard describes location of death, occurrence of multiple emergency admissions, length of hospital stay and cancer treatment for different population groups in London to understand where variation occurs.

The dashboard can be accessed via the Partnership webpage
