Social care and hospital use at the end of life

This briefing summarises a Nuffield Trust report to investigate the use and estimated costs of hospital and social care services for large groups of individuals at the end of their lives, in three PCT/local authority areas.

The Nuffield Trust believe that this is the first time such an estimate has been derived for large populations and that this type of analysis is the first step to achieving better quality of care for the available resources.
