Our care is very personal - you will be allocated a dedicated Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) to co-ordinate your care. You will also be supported by our consultant led, multidisciplinary team. Wherever possible the care will take place in your own home, and will go beyond standard clinical care. Holistic care can include care from our complementary therapists, counselling and practical support.

Our multidisciplinary team 

Your care is led by consultants and delivered by a skilled, multi-disciplinary team, all of whom are specialists in palliative care. The team is made up of doctors and nurses; they are supported by an admin team, counsellors, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and a bereavement support team.

 

Accessing our service

The usual way to access our service is via your GP, district nurse, hospital consultant or specialist nurse. They will discuss with you about the best care to suit your needs and then make contact with us. Once this has happened we will get in touch with you confirming receipt of the referral and informing you of the next steps.
