National Palliative Care Data Collection

NHS England and Public Health England have announced they are working with the National Council for Palliative Care, Help the Hospices and the Cicely Saunders Institute to explore the feasibility, options and costs of the collection of individual level palliative care data. NHS England is currently piloting individual level data collection and consultation on the data set has begun. Data collection via MDS will continue and further updates on the consultation will be available in 2015. Please contact neolcin@phe.gov.uk for more information.
