End of Life care is really important to us at Chesterfield Royal Hospital and we recognise that the last days of life in hospital can be traumatic and very difficult for our patients and their loved ones and it is our aim-
- To provide personalised care at the end of life for our patients and the people identified as important to the dying person (their family, loved ones and friends)
- To ensure our patients are cared for with compassion, dignity and respect and that their needs for comfort are met
- To care for families, loved-ones, others identified as important to the dying person and the bereaved with compassion and sensitivity
Our End of Life strategy sets out our plans for the next few years.
