Macmillan Tayside Palliative and End of Life Care Managed Care Network

The Macmillan Tayside Palliative and End of Life Care Network is established on the recognition that the full breadth and depth of palliative and end of life care need can only be addressed through a partnership approach across all settings. 


It is our vision that the Tayside Palliative and End of Life Care Network will work in partnership, with and for

those who are facing serious illness, those who are near the end of life and those who are dying

so that they have the care they need, when and where they need it.


TayPEOLC MCN was launched in October, 2017 and is supported by Angus, Dundee, Perth & Kinross Health and Social Care Partnerships, NHS Tayside, Macmillan Cancer Support, The Tayside Academic Health and Science Partnership and many other partners. 

Health Secretary Shona Robison, who gave the key note speech at the launch event said, “We are working to ensure that everyone in Scotland who would benefit from palliative and end of life care has access to it by 2021.  The Macmillan Tayside Managed Care Network for Palliative and End of Life Care’s vision for a multiagency managed care network is an exciting and appropriate way to help develop and sustain the services and supports which are crucial to achieving our goal and will provide a helpful model to other health and social care partnerships. 

It will work across traditional health and social care boundaries to deliver improved person-centred care services, helping people to get the care and support that they need when they need it most.”
