The survey for the palliative care review is still open and we’re keen to gather as much feedback as possible from people who have had an experience of these services across Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham and Westminster.
Update on the review
Thank you to those who I have met already to inform this review. Since the review opened I have met with a number of groups of professionals and talked to over 40 people individually ranging from specialist level providers in both acute and community and inpatient settings, community nurses, GP’s, local authorities, CCG’s and Continuing Health Care teams, key national organisations and other experts in the field.
I have also met a number of patients at local Patient Reference Groups, Healthwatch meetings and am in the process of going into hospices to meet with patient and carer groups. More of these events and a dedicated focus group organised by the BME forum are still to come.
We would welcome any further opportunities to speak directly to patients about their experience of palliative care as part of this call to evidence. If you know of any opportunities to do so, we are keen to hear from you, please do get in contact.
