Palliative care services

How we can help

Palliative care is provided in a range of settings and from a range of staff and organisations, including primary health care teams, general practitioners and community nursing staff:

  • Marie Curie cancer care provides nursing support at home for people with cancer
  • community hospitals
  • care homes
  • home care services
  • hospices

Social work services for palliative care are provided through:

  • assessment and care management from social work locality team settings
  • membership of specialist palliative care teams 

Your care needs are comprehensively assessed and resources to meet the needs are provided accordingly. Your needs will then be reviewed regularly.

The support services you receive may include home care services, welfare benefits advice and respite services for carers.

At all times, our services aim to be flexible and responsive.

More information on palliative care is available from Macmillan Cancer Support or on the St Andrew's Hospice website.
