To provide an alternative to a patient‚Äôs current palliative care current option in an acute medical/ hospice setting which can involve long waiting lists of up to 8 weeks for a first appointment with a consultant, parking aggravations/ costs, waiting times and limits placed by NHS on services and the postcode lottery around accessibility of NHS services and treatments, in addition to the negative connotations of being treated in such environments.
It will improve the quality of life of the patients. Geographically more convenient to N/NW London/ Hertfordshire patients, waiting times to be seen by a Palliative Care Consultant will be shorter than the NHS with longer consultation times available. Chai provides free parking, saving the expense and aggravation of parking. Chai‚Äôs volunteer service will assist those without transport. Chai places no limits on services. Carers can access Chai‚Äôs services while the patient is attending the clinic.
