More on Palliative Care

Palliative care has been defined by NICE as follows:

“Palliative care is the active holistic care of patients with advanced progressive illness. Management of pain and other symptoms and provision of psychological, social and spiritual support is paramount. The goal of palliative care is achievement of the best quality of life for patients and their families. Many aspects of palliative care are also applicable earlier in the course of the illness in conjunction with other treatments.”

We provide palliative care to help patients and their loved ones manage their challenges and to live as well as possible with the effects of their disease.
