Green joins end of life strategy board

Posted on January 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

English Community Care Association (ECCA) chief executive Martin Green has been appointed to the End of Life Care Strategy Board. The advisory board, appointed by health minister Rosie Winterton, will provide advice on a strategy to ensure choice, quality of care, equity of access and value for money for people across England. The board includes chief executives of leading charities, senior clinicians and managers from the NHS and social care. “Care homes have always delivered high quality care at the end of life for many frail and vulnerable people and we are delighted that this has been recognised by the End of Life Care Strategy Group,” said Mr Green. “In recent years the Department of Health has gained a better understanding of the important role care homes play at the end of life and I am looking forward to working with the Strategy Group to co-ordinate end of life care across the health and social care system.”
