Sue Ryder carries out survey of care

Sue Ryder Care has conducted a detailed nationwide study of local care needs in a bid to help health service commissioners to contract the right services.

The charity, which hopes the data will lead to more third sector delivery, has attempted to find out how many people in each area suffer from neurological conditions or have palliative care requirements.

"The commissioners often didn't have the information to make the best judgements," said Dan Beety, head of public affairs at Sue Ryder Care.

Beety said the research, carried out by Sue Ryder's new health informatics team, was costly, but the charity felt it was an exercise donors would have wanted it to perform. Sue Ryder now wants to form an informatics group with other charities to share statistics.
