End of Life Care Profiles

These have been produced to improve the availability and accessibility of information around end of life care. The profiles provide a snapshot overview for various geographies in England. They are intended to help local government and health services improve care at the end of life.

The Profiles are grouped into the following domains: Place of Death, Underlying Cause of Death, Mortality Rates, Death in Usual Place of Residence (DiUPR), Care home use at end of life, Dementia (includes Alzheimer’s disease) and other relevant indicators (those extracted from other profiles within PHE). More domains will be added as soon as they become available. In each domain and where possible, information is presented by Government Office Region, Strategic Clinical Network (SCN), Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), County and Unitary Authority (upper tier local authorities) and District and Unitary Authority (lower tier local authorities). Estimates for other geographical configurations are derived automatically by the profiling tool. In each domain, information is presented for persons (males and females) by five age groupings namely; 0-64, 65-74, 75-84, 85 years and above and All Ages. When exploring the data on this tool, the most current year available is shown by default in the ‘Overview’, ‘Compare Areas’ and ‘Areas’ tabs, while the ‘Trends’ tab presents all available years of data for each indicator.
