This award recognises events and activities that raise awareness of the importance of talking about dying, death and bereavement. It's about demystifying death so that the topic is no longer a taboo subject and people feel able to plan for their death and discuss their end of life wishes.
The important work of Leeds Dying Matters Awareness week – coordinated citywide and including our very own Palliative Care team – was deservedly recognised.
At Leeds Community Healthcare Trust our Palliative and End of Life Care team supports staff within neighbourhood teams and care homes to deliver high quality palliative and end of life care. The team has made a significant impact in the last year in improving palliative care in community settings to ensure that patients’ wishes at end of life are met wherever possible. Since their roles were introduced in 2015 their hard work and leadership has been evidenced by an increase in patients achieving their prefered place of death and more staff being trained and supported to deliver high quality palliative care.
In fact, the great work of this team was also recognised last Decemeber as part of our staff awards - the Thank You Event 2016. Take a look at their story, and the work of our other wonderful teams, as they were crowned winners of our Patient Care award.
