Palliative Care Nurses
Palliative Care nurses specialise in cancer and end of life care, providing support and information to palliative care and end of life patients and their families, friends and carers – from the point of diagnosis and during their illness.
They help patients make informed decisions about their treatment, and guide them through the maze of different services. They also help people to cope with problems such as the symptoms associated with treatment and disease.
The services of a Palliative care nurse should be requested via your doctor’s surgery.
Palliative Care Out of Hours
If you need to speak to a Doctor out of surgery hours, please contact your surgery or Palliative care nurse for the out of hours number.
