End of Life Care

The Rowans Surgery aims to provide excellent end of life care to patients. Dr Hughes is the End of Life Care GP at The Rowans Surgery.

Policies are in place including a Patient Charter as well as information about Advance Care Planning. Please download the Patient Charter and Advance Care Planning leaflet for further information on these policies.

Patients who we feel are likely to be in the last year of life are discussed at least monthly at our multidisciplinary meetings. With their consent, their details are uploaded to Coordinate My Care (CMC). CMC is an electronic communication record which is shared between us, the GP out of hours service, District nurses, the Hospice as well as the London Ambulance Service. For information about CMC, please visit the CMC website.
