Macmillan Specialist Palliative Care Team


The Macmillan Specialist Palliative Care Team is available to patients/carers and professionals across all care settings throughout North East Lincolnshire. The multi-professional team is made up of specialist nurses; a specialist social worker; GPs and a welfare benefits advisor.

The aim of the team is to work in partnership with the multi-professional health and social care teams for patients with identified complex and/or specialist palliative care need. This will include:

  • Assessing, implementing and monitoring strategies to relieve distressing symptoms
  • Providing psychological, spiritual and social care in confidence, to both patients and carers
  • Enabling patients and carers to make informed choices by providing information relating to diagnosis, investigate procedures and treatment
  • Providing bereavement support to families/carers already known to the Macmillan Specialist Palliative Care Team
  • We also provide a telephone advice service to professionals during out of hours work
