Press release New approach to care for the dying published New Priorities for Care launched as the new basis for caring for someone at the end of their life.
Published 26 June Department of Health and Social Care This was published under the to Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government A new approach to caring for dying people based on the needs and wishes of the person and those close to them has been launched today and welcomed by Care and Support Minister Norman Lamb.
It takes the form of five new Priorities for Care which succeed the Liverpool Care Pathway LCP as the new basis for caring for someone at the end of their life. The Care programme approach approach focusses on giving compassionate care and is a move away from previous processes and protocols.
It recognises that in many cases, enabling the individual to plan for death should start well before a person reaches the end of their life and should be an integral part of personalised and proactive care.
The new Priorities for Care mean that: Sensitive communication takes place between staff and the person who is dying and those important to them. The dying person, and those identified as important to them, are involved in decisions about treatment and care.
The people important to the dying person are listened to and their needs are respected. Care is tailored to the individual and delivered with compassion — with an individual care plan in place. This priority includes the fact that a person must be supported to eat and drink as long as they wish to do so, and their comfort and dignity prioritised.
The aim is to promote a stronger foundation for good care and a culture of compassion in Care programme approach NHS and social care. The priorities put people and their families at the centre of decisions about treatment.
Care and Support Minister Norman Lamb, said: This will make sure that their voices, and those of their families, are heard at all times. The poor care given to some people and their families on the Liverpool Care Pathway must never happen again.
There are many shining examples in the NHS of excellent end of life care, and I am committed to making sure that care in the last few days and hours of life is tailored to the needs of each individual.
The priorities for care announced today promote a culture of compassion that puts people and their families at the centre of decisions about their treatment and care. This is something I am passionate about. They also underline the importance of sensitive and effective communication between staff and the person who is dying and those close to them.
As Chief Nursing Officer, I call on individuals who deliver services for people in the last few days and hours of life and their families to make the Priorities for Care part of their practice and to support colleagues in doing the same. The Alliance response also sets out how compassionate care for all those approaching the end of their lives should be delivered.
Each organisation in the Alliance has set out what it will do to support this.

Alliance members will now work to embed the priorities into every aspect of their work on end of life care from initial training through to inspection. The Alliance has also called on members of the public to participate in a national conversation about dying, to raise awareness and understanding of this important part of life.
The review found that where the LCP was used well, it delivered good care, but also found examples of poor care.
Issues included a lack of tailored, personalised care and in some cases, the LCP became regarded as a tick box exercise.
In many cases relatives and their carers did not feel they were involved in discussions about the care plan. There were also cases of food and liquids unacceptably withheld. As a result, the review panel recommended that the LCP should be phased out.
The Panel will continue to have a role in providing independent advice to Ministers about implementation of the commitments in the Alliance response.
Baroness Neuberger said on behalf of the review panel: We welcome this response to our review recommendations and its wide range of commitments aimed at improving care of the dying. Our review exposed some distressing instances of lack of high quality care and we are indebted to those members of the public, as well as health and care staff, who told us about their experiences of the Liverpool Care Pathway.
There needs to be in the very near future an explanation, in terms that everyone can understand, of what care they and those close to them have a right to receive under the new arrangements.
Without this, there will be continued suspicions of malpractice and lack of care which may not be appropriate.
When the Review was published last year, the Minister for Care and Support announced that people who have a complaint — even where a complaint had already been pursued — about the care given to a dying patient on the Liverpool Care Pathway should have access to an independent assessment of their case should they want it.
That message is reinforced today. The Government strongly agrees with the conclusions of the Clwyd-Hart Review of Complaints in the NHS, which reported in Octoberthat complaints amounting to a serious or untoward incident warrant independent local investigation.
The work of the Alliance has now concluded with the publications today. The documents published today are: One Chance to Get it Right: The support materials for health and care staff are available on the NHS Improving Quality website here www.
