The Palliative & End of Life Care ICS Palliative and End of Life Care Clinical Network is a multi-professional group made of health professionals from organisations across the North East and North Cumbria Clinical Networks region, covering a population of over 3 million people.


As part of the national change in Network boundaries we are proud to say that we now work closely with our partner ICS groups in Yorkshire and Humber, becoming part of the North East and Yorkshire Strategic Clinical Network (SCN).  While we maintain our individual identity, we are working to align across the SCN as much as possible.  If you would like to see the Yorkshire and Humber website you can access it here

NB: Please note that there are differences in the way we function as individual ICS groups and we will not always have the same guidance.  For example, in North East and North Cumbria we use Deciding right as an advance care planning tool while Yorkshire and Humber use ReSPECT.  Anything you choose to use as a resource from the Yorkshire and Humber website should be used with caution and only if it is appropriate for our region.
