Renal Home Visiting
End of life support through the Conservative Management Home Visiting Service for end stage renal disease. The current service provides advanced care planning, symptom management, practical nursing care, facilitates end of life care and discusses preferred place of care and death.
Case for change
There are other dedicated end of life services and moving this service to the community allows for fully integrated care. As a result there will be a greater emphasis on patient outcomes and how to meet these and improved patient and carer experience. The change removes duplication in services and as a result, provides better value for money.
CCGs will ensure the re-commissioning of these services to maintain the current nursing and end of life support. A case management approach will be provided to all patients.
- 24 hour nursing care within their own home due to long term chronic disease or as a result of an acute episode of ill health;
- Ongoing case management or rehabilitation as a result of a long term condition(s) or complex needs from multiple conditions.
- Adhere to and provide evidence of compliance with the NICE quality standard for End of life for adults
The existing service is provided in a patients home and that will continue, along with care co-ordination across other relevant community services.
