Palliative and end of life care

Nationally the End of Life Care Programme is managed through NHS England’s Strategy and Innovation Directorate within Personalised Care. In the North West the Palliative and End of Life Care (PEoLC) Network comprises two networks, one for Lancs and South Cumbria (L&SC) and one for Cheshire and Merseyside (C&M).

In C&M the PEoLC Network has an End of Life Care Programme Board within the At Scale Delivery Programme of Cheshire and Merseyside’s Health and Care Partnership. In L&SC the PEoLC Network sits within the Out of Hospitals workstream of the Healthier Lancashire Integrated Care System.

The Network aims to empower people of C&M and L&SC and those who care for them, to live well before dying with peace and dignity supported by care which is personalised, high quality and equally accessible to all through a work plan for each of the network areas.
