This website is the result of a collaboration between partnered organisations supporting those who reside in Somerset, all with the same joint aim and passion; to improve the end of life experience and bereavement support for every person in Somerset.

If you are a member of the public, you are welcome to explore the public section of this website, but please be aware that the rest of the website is designed for professionals to use. You may wish to discuss what you find with one of your care team, for example your GP, district nurse, specialist nurse or care provider.

This website aims to provide advice, guidance, education and support to all health and social care teams in the county by sharing national and local 'Somerset-wide' guidelines. Certain documents are formatted differently depending on where in the county you are based. Please ensure you have the correct version for your area.
