The NHS England End of Life Care team, its partners and stakeholders regularly seek to identify suitable indicators to better measure choice and quality in end of life care. The NHS England End of Life Programme Board and the Ambitions Partnership for Palliative and End of Life Care meet on a regular basis throughout the year. The review and assessment of the effectiveness of datasets and metrics relating to palliative and end of life care features frequently on the agenda for both groups.
