Dear Department of Health,

Dear Mr Winder,
Thank you for your correspondence of 3 December about the Liverpool Care
Pathway (LCP) or its equivalent still being practiced within the NHS.  I
have been asked to reply.

Following the publication of the independent review of the LCP in July
2013, the LCP was phased out in favour of an individual approach to
end-of-life care for each patient.


For more information on the LCP or its equivalent, you may wish to contact
The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust directly at:


The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust

Trust Headquarters

North Manchester General Hospital

Delaunays Road

Crumpsall M8 5RB


Tel: 0161 624 0420

I hope this reply is helpful.

Yours sincerely,
