care services on a continuing basis. These data are useful on a variety of levels to inform:

– service management

– service monitoring and audit

– development of local palliative and end of life care strategy and service planning

– commissioning of services

– development of national policy

NCPC also provides other forms of information and data to support service development, for example itsdementia work, workforce survey of specialist palliative care, population based needs assessment, and funding surveys. The MDS is of great help in supporting the implementation of national initiatives to develop palliative and end of life care in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
