Palliative Care Team Brighton & Hove is part of Palliative Care Partnership.

We are a specialist team of nurses, doctors, occupational therapists and social workers, who aim to promote high quality holistic care for people living with and dying from life limiting illnesses. The service we offer includes assessment of physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual needs, as well as pain relief and the management of other symptoms. We support relatives and carers and provide expert advice to other health care professionals.
