Palliative care review paused until further notice

23 March 2020

The public engagement period on local palliative care services in Brent, Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster ended last week on 13 March, thank you to everyone who took the time to engage and raise awareness of this period of involvement. Commissioners across the four boroughs will be reviewing all feedback and we will be publishing a report which will outline what we have heard in due course.

Timelines changed

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the impact of this on the health service, the timelines and next steps of this review will now change to enable all resource to be available to support the current NHS emergency response and our frontline colleagues.

The situation will be reviewed on an on-going basis and the programme will be reinstated at the earliest possible opportunity. The views and opinions of patients, carers, local residents and stakeholders are of the utmost importance and we will continue to ensure we engage the public in the next steps.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as the NHS focusses its resources at this challenging time.
