"The End of Life Care Strategy (2008) identified the need to
improve co-ordination of care, recognising that people at the end
of life frequently received care from a wide variety of teams and
organisations. The developments of Locality Registers (now
Electronic Palliative Care Co-ordination Systems known as EPaCCS)
were identified as a mechanism for enabling co-ordination."
