Description

In 2004-08 there were around 250 deaths each year of London residents aged 0-19 from causes likely to have required palliative care (excluding deaths under 28 days). Only 15% of the child deaths analysed occurred at home with the majority occurring in hospital. The death rate from causes likely to have required palliative care was nearly twice as high for children and young people living in deprived areas as for those living in the least deprived parts of London. The rate of admission to hospital for causes likely to require palliative care for children and young people from Black ethnic groups was more than double that of the White ethnic groups.
