These profiles have been developed by the National End of Life Care Intelligence Network (NEoLCIN) to improve the availability and accessibility of information and intelligence around palliative and end of life care. They provide an overview across multiple geographies in England, to support commissioning and planning of local services.

The data in the profiles are grouped into topics. These include:

  • place of death
  • underlying cause of death
  • mortality
  • death in usual place of residence (DiUPR)
  • care homes and community
  • hospital care
  • dementia

Classification of place of death is a guide that supports the methods used for all place of death indicators on these profiles.

The July 2022 update on the percentage of deaths with 3 or more emergency admissions in the last 3 months of life is accompanied by a statistical commentary.

Factsheets

Care home factsheets for England and UTLAs

These factsheets include trends in care home deaths and data on care home bed availability by service speciality for England and upper tier local authorities (UTLAs).

Place of death factsheets for CCGs

This factsheet provides the most recent data available on trends in place of death at CCG level during the COVID-19 pandemic and compares this with the pattern seen in 2019 as a baseline.

It compares CCG and England data from 2019 to 2021 for the number and percentage of deaths in hospitals (acute or community, not psychiatric); at home; in care homes; in hospices (not community), and ‘other places’.

Atlas of variation for palliative and end of life care

The Atlas of variation for palliative and end of life care pdfs are located in the ‘Themed Atlas’ section. They contain 29 indicators on the quality of care in hospitals, services and in the community.

A supporting NHS Interactive Atlas version enables organisations to view the data at a local level and see where they sit within the national landscape or within their peer groups. The Atlas includes maps, charts, time series data and associated statistics across all the indicators.
