Palliative care

Palliative care, or end of life care, is the active, holistic care of patients in the last months and years of their life. 

Our aim is to give patients the best possible quality of life. 

We provide:

  • pain and symptom control
  • emotional support
  • carer support
  • help with planning future palliative care
  • support with end of life care

 We give support to all wards. The service is available Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm. An on-call service is available at other times for advice. 

The team includes specially trained nurses and specialist doctors. If you would like help from the team ask your ward staff to refer you to us.
