Information for health and social care professionals

Over 500,000 people die each year in England of whom two thirds will be over 75. Death occurs in a wide variety of settings from hospitals, care homes and hospices to the home. Many people will be transferred many times between these different settings in their final years, months, days and hours. So being responsive to their individual needs and preferences is an enormous challenge.
