Project ECHO Networks

As a Project ECHO hub, Harlington Hospice hosts ECHO networks. These are themed communities of practice who meet regularly to share knowledge and experience with a particular group of practitioners. At Harlington Hospice our community of practice centers around palliative care and end of life. We work in collaboration with MyHealth Hillingdon to deliver our ECHO networks.

Project ECHO started in the USA and has now been brought to the UK by Hospice UK. You can learn more about Project ECHO here.

Our first ECHO project worked with London Ambulance Service (LAS) clinicians, to improve their confidence when attending to dying patients and caring for them at home, an increasing aspect of their role in the community.

Our community of practice included team members from:

  • Harlington Hospice, including Dr Ros Taylor MBE and Jo Fernandes
  • Central and North West London (CNWL) NHS Trust
  • London Ambulance Service
  • MyHealth Hillingdon

Our next ECHO projects are planned with Care Homes in North West London and Community Pharmacies.

For further discussion please email Dr Ros Taylor MBE on rtaylor@harlingtonhospice.org.
