Half of All Deaths Occur in Hospitals

Nearly half of all deaths in England occur in hospitals – 223,007 out of a total of 469,975 in 2014.


For this reason, trust boards, managers and clinicians should recognise that a core responsibility of hospitals is to deliver high-quality care for patients in their final days of life and provide appropriate support to their families, carers and those close to them.

Government policy in recent years has reinforced this requirement.
