Local Palliative & End of Life Care Services

General Practitioners (GP's) and Community Nurses are the main providers of palliative and end of life care in the community. Most GP practices use the Gold Standards Framework (GSF) - a simple tried and tested framework to help primary health care teams deliver the best possible care for people nearing the end of their lives. Initially developed for cancer patients, it is now used for any patient with a life limiting illness and in other settings such as care homes. For patients with complex palliative and end of life care needs the primary health care team may work alongside specialist community palliative care teams.
