‘Shared Care Record for the expected last days of life’

From NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)

The ‘Shared Care Record for the expected last days of life’ will be available from 15 January. Developed by clinicians and people from health, care and voluntary organisations across the county, it is written in a way which means it can be used and shared by healthcare professionals in any care setting, as well as the person and their carers.

The way I read this, it’s providing a standardisation of communications between individuals and organisations involved in care, but only in the Gloucestershire area. I’d be really interested to know the progress of the national rollout of a standard like this.
