Palliative medicine is changing. We now offer more than just pain control. Instead, we offer patients, as well as their family and friends, a total holistic management program for their illness.
We see patients with end-stage diseases. That’s not only cancers - with our increasingly ageing population, we now have more patients with heart, kidney failure, liver failure and neurological degenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis and motor neurone disease.
Research shows that quality of life is improved if patients see a palliative care physician at an earlier stage of their disease rather than at the very end.
We work closely with oncologists and physicians to support patients through their treatments.
We are a team of doctors and nurses with many links to services in the community.
