Best care for everyone
On 19th June 2015 our Trust was rated as 'requires improvement' by the CQC.
Many people, by the time they reach the end of their lives, have multiple conditions and complex needs that require a pro-active, co-ordinated response. Making appropriate plans to meet a person's changing needs and aid timely transitions to end of life care are critical. The process of planning often involves multi-disciplinary teams working across local health, social care and voluntary sector services, and an ongoing dialogue with a person and those close to them about how to meet their current needs and those that can be anticipated in the future.
