In a nutshell: This article explores the variation in commissioning of palliative care services across England by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). The study concludes that whilst there is excellent specialist palliative care provision in parts of England, there is a vast degree of variation across the country and across different services. Most strikingly, there is little uniformity in the data CCGs are required to hold, and disparity in the responsibility of service provision between CCGs, Trusts and local hospices.
