Our care is very personal – you and your family will be introduced to one of our team of qualified Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS). These nurses are highly trained in palliative care and will be your main point of contact.
These nurses will care for you, giving you some treatments and will work with your GP and other care professionals to ensure that you get the best care possible in your own home. They have a wealth of experience, they understand your fears and worries and will help you and your loved ones through this difficult time.
Your Clinical Nurse Specialist is able to advise you on how best to manage your symptoms. We try to ensure that it is always the same Clinical Nurse visiting you, but as you can imagine, this isn't always possible. Rest assured though, any nurse visiting you will fully understand your care needs and the treatment you require.
You may also be eligible for allowances and grants. Your nurse will be able to advise you on these.
The wider support team
The Clinical Support Team work alongside the Clinical Nurse Specialists providing holistic nursing care to help you stay in your own home. They are able to undertake specialist tasks such as blood transfusions and administer intravenous drugs. This same team may also offer occasional overnight support and respite care.
