Below is an update on the EOL working group’s successes in the last year.

Did you know, EOL are part of the North East Essex Health and Wellbeing Alliance, working together with local healthcare, voluntary and Government organisations to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities?

Part of the Alliance’s work is dedicated to working together to help local people achieve ten priorities for end-of-life care (referred to as the 10 outcomes that matter), one of which is ‘To respect people’s preferences for care during the last 12 months of their life’.

Last year, (April 2022 to March 2023), 80.6% of people who died in north east Essex, died in their preferred place of care, thanks to organisations working in a more collaborative way, and 97% of people living with an incurable or life limiting illness who were surveyed, said they felt they were treated with dignity and respect all or most of the time.
