Liverpool volunteer end of life care

An End of Life Care (EoLC) Volunteer service, based in an Academic Specialist Palliative Care Unit and working across the hospital providing support to patients with a palliative diagnosis or those approaching the end of life.

This guide uses learning from the End-of-Life Care Service being delivered in the Liverpool University Hospitals. The purpose of the guide is to provide a potential service adopter with the information needed to be able to:

a) Decide if the service would be of benefit to their organisation

b) Understand what considerations are needed to adapt the service to their environment
