This report presents information on costing end of life care, with a view to developing potential costs and savings which the EoLC national programme might use as a framework for QIPP activities in 2012/13 and beyond. The review covers 57 documents relating to end of life care costs in acute hospital settings and in community settings, and considers the potential cost savings to be achieved by changing the place of care.
