A CHARITY is appealing for help to improve the care for people coming to the end of their life.

The End of Life Partnership has been funded by Macmillan to run a two year project across Central Cheshire, with the aim of improving the co-ordination of care for people with life limiting conditions.

Catherine Mills, Project Manager, End of Life Partnership, said: “Evidence shows that when someone is at the end of their life, care being well co-ordinated can make a big difference to the person, their family and loved ones. Well co-ordinated care ensures that different services are joined up and there is good communication between patients, families and professionals."

This kind of co-ordination also means that staff involved in giving care share information and expertise so that everyone involved knows what decisions the patient has made and what is important to them.

Mills added: "We would like to hear about people’s experiences, whether good or bad, and would encourage people to share their ideas for how we can improve the way that services work together.”

If you are interested in getting involved with the project, the charity are asking for people to tell us their story or attend one of a series workshops to be held at Nantwich Football Club and St Luke’s Hospice in Winsford.
