The North West and the South East coast ambulance services participated in a joint project with the National End-of-Life Care Intelligence Network to explore collection and use of ambulance data in supporting delivery of end-of-life care.

The report includes recommendations for supporting ambulance professionals in their role which include better identification of the dying patient and unified national ambulance data.
