Acute hospitals and secondary care
We know that over half of all deaths take place in hospital,
despite the majority of people not wanting this. We also know that
the estimated total cost of acute admissions ending in death in
2010-11 was over £520m.
We're working with organisations across the country to transform
end of life care in acute hospitals. Providing support tools,
guidance and training, we're monitoring the scale and pace of
improvements. Find out more on the Transform
Programme web pages.
