In this audio slideshow, Theo Georghiou, Senior Research Analyst at the Nuffield Trust, describes the key findings of a Nuffield Trust study commissioned by the National End of Life Care Intelligence Network, looking at the use of local authority-funded social care by individuals at the end of life. The study used innovative data linkage techniques developed by the Nuffield Trust to create what is thought to be the largest linked health and social care dataset in England.

    13. 13. © Nuffield Trust Concluding observations • Local authority-funded social care plays a large role in the care of those near the end of life • There appears to be a large amount of variation in social care use • Social care use appears to increase only modestly during the final year, when compared to hospital use • Higher use of social care services is associated with lower use of hospital care
