The King’s Fund’s Enhancing the Healing Environment (EHE) programme is discussed in broad terms. The King’s Fund has been running this award-winning programme since 2000. This report describes projects at 19 NHS trusts and one prison which made efforts to improve the environment of care at the end of life. Case studies of the sites that took part in the programme are presented.
The latest phase of the programme, namely Environments for Care at End of Life has been evaluated independently by the Sue Ryder Care Centre for the study of supportive, palliative and end of life care at the University of Nottingham.
