Purpose and Scope

Usage 1 :

Usage Type :    
Usage Description :    
To provide staff caring for the person with an understanding of the authority that has been granted to the LPA which will support communication with LPA and prompt delivery of appropriate care. The National End of Life Care Intelligence Network, hosted by Public Health England, has undertaken widespread consultation and has updated the Standard to SCCI1580 following formal withdrawal of support for the Liverpool Care Pathway. The related message specification and value sets have been updated and a number of subsets have been created to support this requirement. Many of them will be useful for other purposes and thus where wider utility is expected the names do not reference “end of life care”.
