Palliative care is specialised medical care for people with serious illnesses. We focus on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of a serious illness – whatever the diagnosis
The goal of the palliative care service is to improve quality of life for both you and your family. Palliative care is provided by a team of doctors, nurses and other specialists, who work with a patient's other doctors to provide an extra layer of support. Palliative care is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness, and it can be provided together with curative treatment.
