NHS England has worked with providers and commissioners to undertake qualitative and quantitative testing of the Specialist Palliative Care Currencies for Adults and Children.
We have published a report on the outcomes of this testing and are making the currencies available to use from April 2017. We have also produced two guidance documents to help organisations who wish to use the currencies to support commissioning of these services.
- Developing a new approach to Palliative Care Funding- Final Report 2015/16 Testing
- Guidance for using the Adult Palliative Care Currency
- Guidance for using the Children’s Palliative Care Currency
