February 16, 2013
With the Department of Health today announcing the panel for the review into the use of the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP), the National End of Life Care Programme encourages individuals and organisations to participateand share their experiences.
Claire Henry, Director of the National End of Life Care Programme, said: “I am pleased that Baroness Neuberger is giving everyone, from members of the public to health and social care staff, the opportunity to express their thoughts and share their experiences of the Liverpool Care Pathway. It is only by listening to people and making continued improvements that we can ensure everyone receives high quality care as they approach the end of their lives.
“This review is an opportunity not to be missed for individuals and organisations and I would encourage as many as possible to contribute their experiences, whether good or bad.
“It is really encouraging to see such a wide range of people on the review panel. With such a spread of backgrounds and experiences the review will be solidly independent, so we can all be confident that the review process and its findings will be credible. We look forward to supporting Baroness Neuberger and the review wherever possible.”
