In a nutshell: The Pan Birmingham Cancer Network has developed a specially tailored end of life care pathway for all patients in acute hospitals, regardless of diagnosis. The pathway, which is called the Supportive Care Pathway (SCP), is currently being used on seven wards across Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospital NHS Trust with 200 patients having been started on the pathway since January 2009. The trust is committed to extending its use to all its acute wards in due course.
