Condition: Palliative Care

Palliative Care Treatment

The aim of palliative care is to provide:

  • Information for the person and their family;
  • Accurate and holistic assessment of a person’s needs;
  • Symptom control;
  • Psychological, social, spiritual, and practical support;
  • Open and sensitive communication with the person and their family.

For symptom control the aim should be to use a few medications as possible. The type of medication used is dictated by the severity or mechanism causing the symptom.

Medicinal cannabis products may be considered when first line therapies have not achieved adequate symptomatic relief.

Eligible patients can provide us with their healthcare records or we can obtain these through your GP. This is to confirm that a patient’s condition has been fully assessed and all other treatment options have been attempted. We will ensure that the primary care provider receives all treatment communication to maintain the highest level of clinical governance.

We also accept referrals from healthcare professionals.
