We are working with the other Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Leeds to look at developing a 24 hour telephone service for patients in the last years of life and the people who care for them. We are doing this because a recent survey told us that we need to improve evening and weekend care for people in the last years of life.

We have developed a survey which will help us decide what this new service might look like.  You can find the survey on the NHS Leeds West CCG website here: http://www.leedswestccg.nhs.uk/get-involved/we-need-your-views/end-of-life-care/

If you are in the last years of life or care for someone in the last years of life, please take five minutes to share your thoughts on this project.  If you’d like to get more involved in developing this work we’d love to hear from you.

Thank you for your support with this important project.  If you have any questions please contact Chris Bridle by email chris.bridle@nhs.net or phone 0113 8435473
