Operating as part of our Neighbourhood Teams and Night Service and supported by Neighbourhood Palliative Care Leads (NPCL) our nurses and care assistants deliver palliative and end of life care that is safe, effective and reflects patients’ wishes, enabling them to be cared for in their preferred place of care and/or death wherever possible.

Who's it for?

If you have been told your health may not improve or you have a life limiting illness, you may be offered palliative care. The healthcare professionals caring for you will offer to talk to you (and anyone else you would like to be involved) about what this means for you. 

Our staff also attend care planning meetings to co-ordinate a safe transfer of care, for example from hospital to a patient’s preferred place of care. We also have End of Life Care Facilitators who support staff working in care homes. The team provides training and education and can offer clinical support where needed.
