End of life care (EoLC)

EoLC refers to care of patients in the final hours or days or weeks of their lives, when an illness that has become progressive and incurability is recognised.

The local services

We work closely with other services to help support people and their families at this very difficult time.

Together we work with individuals and their families to address physical, emotional, social, spiritual and financial issues.

The core team includes a GP, District Nurse and MacMillan Nurse.

Please book with your GP if you or someone you care for needs help now.
