Die Well report is published


A REPORT looking at care, access to services, and challenges for people and their families at the end of life, has been published.

The Die Well report has been produced by Healthwatch Essex, CVS Tendring and Community360 in collaboration with a steering group, which included the Die Well domain lead, representatives from district and county councils, Essex Fire and Rescue, the Local Delivery Pilot, North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group and ESNEFT.

The aim was to gain a deeper understanding of what facilitates and what presents barriers to access to services and how to address them, the key challenges facing people and their families at the end of life within the community, local cultural factors and limitations, and end of life care in residential and nursing homes as well as support to live at home.

The Die Well domain is the third in a series of reports published as companions to the Community Assets Map commissioned by the North East Essex Health and Wellbeing Alliance, which highlights the strength of the community through the numerous assets found across our six neighbourhoods. 

We found a range of report findings, some of which include: the need to improve communication information and language around end of life; awareness and death literacy to remove stigma around dying and encouraging people to plan ahead.

We are delighted to be part of this amazing project and to show how community assets are part and parcel of the communities that exist in in Colchester and Tendring.

Using the North East Essex Health and Wellbeing Alliance domains as a framework for each report, there will ultimately be a library of six reports:

  • Start Well – completed
  • Feel Well – conducted
  • Be Well
  • Age Well
  • Stay Well
  • Die Well – completed
