What does this service provide?

We provide specialist palliative care support to patients and families affected by complex life limiting illness.

Specialist palliative care services are required for people living with more complex and/or long-term conditions which are life-limiting or life-threatening. The needs of this group cannot be met by their core team alone. Our team provides specialist advice and support to the wider care team providing direct palliative care to the patient.
