Using linked health use data and council data to examine health and social care use at the end of life

PROJECT STATUS: Ongoing
/
START DATE AND DURATION: October 2019
Summary

This research aims to understand how individual and households characteristics affect health service use and costs for patients in their last year of life, in different settings. 

We use linked, routine data of health and social care service utilisation across all settings of care (primary, community, acute, mental health and child and adult social care) with council data in Barking and Dagenham. This project will inform national policy on end of life care by identifying opportunities for better integration of health services for frail and older people.
