In a nutshell: This article reports on a rapid response hospice at home service piloted by Sue Ryder Care. The project supported 17 patients to die in their own homes. Evaluation of the project will be shared with the local primary care trust in the hope that it will continue to fund the service. Other community-based models of end of life care that the charity has developed are outlined.

Some important notes: If you do not have an NHS Athens password, please contact your local NHS Library for the full text of the article.  Follow this link to find your local NHS Library.
