Over 170 indicators on place and cause of death will give a picture of local end of life care needs for each CCG, Public Health England (PHE) has claimed.

End of life care profiles for each clinical commissioning group (CCG) in England have been published for the first time. 
Over 170 indicators on place and cause of death will give a picture of local end of life care needs for each CCG, Public Health England (PHE) has claimed. 
PHE's National End of Life Care Intelligence Network (NEoLCIN) has published the profiles, which draw together a wide range of information to give an overview of variations in cause and place of death, by age and sex, for each CCG in England.
A PHE statement reads: "The profiles will help commissioners and providers of end of life care get a clearer picture of the end of life care needs of their local populations. 
"They will help with the planning and delivery of services and will support drives locally towards improving end of life care." 
The indicators are presented in four separate tools, using Office for National Statistics mortality data from 2010 to 2012. 
Data can be viewed through: 
 – An interactive map showing a single indicator and enabling comparison with CCGs across England.
 – A spine chart showing multiple indicators for each CCG comparing to the minimum, maximum and average values for England.
The profiles are available from the National End of Life Care Intelligence Network website.
