At CMC, we are always looking for new ways to raise awareness of the benefits of urgent care planning: among patients, healthcare professionals and the public alike.
Since we launched it, our service has attracted a great deal of interest, from specialist medical journals to mainstream media. CMC has been profiled on national TV, praised in Parliament and has earned a prestigious award for NHS innovation. We have collected the best of this content here:
End of life care in the spotlight
End of life care continues to be a high profile topic. Media coverage is ongoing around the Liverpool Care Pathway, end of life care has been highlighted as a priority area in the new NHS Mandate and it is also proposed for inclusion in the NHS Constitution.
While much media coverage has been balanced, helping to stimulate informed debate, we are concerned with some scaremongering reports which propagate misinformation. We know that as a direct result heightened fears and anxieties are being seen in daily practice.
