Clinical Guidelines

Supporting a patient with a life limiting illness.

From helping people to make informed choices about their care to supporting best practice in care quality, our team of experts can help you support a patient with a life limiting illness.

Planning future care

Encouraging a person to record how they want to be cared for in the final months of their life will help them to feel more in control and get the care they want.  Download our template ‘Advance Care Plan’ here or see the NHS choices website for more information.

Gold Standards Framework

The Gold Standards Framework offers training and guidance to help you provide outstanding care to patients facing the end of their life. And if you’re planning to set up a Gold Standard Framework at your practice in Surrey or Sussex, our St Catherine’s nursing and medical teams can help.

End of Life Care Strategy

Published in 2008, the End of Life Care Strategy provides a framework for health and social care services and sets out recommendations based on feedback from clinicians and palliative care experts.
