Situation

Living with a terminal illness brings immense pressures and anxieties both for the patient and the patient's family. A deteriorating physical condition, coupled with psychological problems, doubts and fears can bring on sense of utter hopelessness and isolation.

Solution

We provide specialist palliative care to our community. People diagnosed with terminal illness such as cancer, end stage neurological, cardiac, renal or lung disease may be cared for as Day Patients. 'Day Therapy’ which includes our Independent Living Team offers patients a range of complementary therapies together with more conventional treatments; these include a Breathlessness Clinic, Creative Therapies, Transfusion/Infusion services. Extensive Family and Carer Services are also provided.
