Greater Manchester and Cheshire Cancer Network, Cumbria and Lancashire End of Life Network and Merseyside and Cheshire Cancer Network have worked together to develop a North West End of Life Care Regional Facilitators Network.
Representatives from each Network have formed a steering group to manage the network into the future.
The Network is open to facilitators from all sectors in an end of life care role.
Terms of reference have been developed for the network and shared with members.
The network was launched on Tuesday 4thOctober 2011 and an event was held in Blackpool where 70 facilitators came together from across the North West to share good practice, network and develop their own skills.
The facilitators that attended identified many benefits of being part of the network and the event evaluated positively.
Into the future
The steering group hopes to continue to support members at a local level and via the functions of this website. There will be a repeat annual conference in 2012.
This part of the website is dedicated to End of Life Care Facilitators and here you can find information on the North West Regional End of Life Facilitators Network including:
