Cover HLIN PHE Practice Briefing End of Life Care

This Housing LIN Practice Briefing looks at the importance of end of life care delivered at home, describing the context, inequalities in end of life care, examples of good or emerging practice, and recommendations for actions.

Funded by Public Health England, it is intended to be a practical guide for those working in:

Using this guide these groups can understand their respective roles, and how they may work together, to help people to have their end of life care wishes met.
