G_CS_72 Five Priorities for Care of the Dying Person (Adult)

Following the withdrawal of the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) a national coalition of organisations called the Leadership Alliance for the Care of Dying People (LACDP, 2014) published national guidance in the ‘One Chance to get it Right’ document. This document set out the approach that all organisations caring for dying patients should follow and recommended the implementation of five priorities for care of the dying person.


In Lincolnshire a cross organisational approach has been taken to developing the implementation of the ‘Five Priorities for Care of the Dying Person’ (LACDP,2014). Lincolnshire Community Health Services (LCHS), United Lincolnshire Hospitals (ULH), St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice and Marie Curie Lincolnshire have worked collaboratively and consulted with General Practioner representatives and Commissioners in the production of these Lincolnshire guidelines. These guidelines apply to all health care organisations providing end of life care in Lincolnshire in the last days of life
