Ambition 2 – Each person gets fair access to care
“I live in a society where I get good end of life care regardless of who I am, where I live or the circumstances of my life.”

End of Life locality registers evaluation
EPaCCS case for change
The End of Life Care Strategy (2008) identified the need to improve co-ordination of care, recognising that people at the end of life frequently received care from a wide variety of teams and organisations. The development of Locality Registers (now known as EPaCCS) were identified as a mechanism for enabling coordination.

Finding the Words
A group of people with life-limiting conditions, and those who have experienced the death of a loved person, came together to discuss their involvement with people who had the task of supporting those approaching the end of life. Through these discussions 'Finding the Words', the DVD and work book were developed to help staff in their conversations and care.
