What does the palliative care team do?

We aim to improve the quality of life of patients with potentially life-limiting illnesses, and their families. This includes pain relief, managing other symptoms and providing emotional support.

Palliative care can help people when they are first diagnosed, as well as supporting people throughout their illness, and as they approach the end of their life.
