End of Life Care Facilitators and Champions Network

 End of Life Care Facilitators Network

The End of Life Care Facilitators and Champions Network website hosted by the University of Hull closed on 30th June 2016, and  is being replaced by a national online platform in September.

NHS England has commissioned the National Council for Palliative Care (NCPC) to develop a central hub for Palliative and End of Life Care on the Ambitions website (endoflifecareambitions.org.uk). It will act as a knowledge hub supporting improvements for palliative and end of life care, implementation of the ‘Ambitions framework’ and associated work of the National Palliative and End of Life Care Partnership.

The knowledge hub will be aimed predominately at palliative and end of life care professionals, service providers and commissioners and will contain resources, case studies, useful documents, links to other relevant websites and potentially news articles and a calendar of events. Material held on other platforms (such as the NHS IQ website) will transition across to the site where relevant – the NHSIQ website will also close at the end of 2016-17 as this organisation no longer exists and the website is not being updated.

A project group, made up of members from across the sector has been established to manage and oversee the expansion of the website - this group will be responsible for ensuring the content on the site remains fit for purpose. It is envisaged the website will be up and running by the end of September 2016. Following its re-launch, I would like to encourage you to visit the site and help with its promotion by signposting others there for information.

NHS England also aim to hold a series of webinars and develop a newsletter which will be issued throughout the year – you will receive an email asking if you wish to be part of their mailing list in due course.
