If you, or a loved one, has been told that you have a terminal illness or life-limiting illness, you will be offered palliative care. The aim of palliative care is to improve the quality of life of patients and families who experience complex problems as they face all of the challenges of a life limiting illness.
Palliative care aims to treat or manage pain and the relief of other physical symptoms. It also involves providing psychological, social and spiritual support from diagnosis, through the stages of illness.
You may receive palliative care alongside other treatments, therapies and medicines such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

End of life care is part of our palliative care service and supports all those with advanced, progressive, incurable illness to live as well as possible and to die with dignity.
It enables the supportive and palliative care needs of both patient and family to be identified and met throughout the last year of life and into bereavement. It includes management of pain and other symptoms and provision of psychological, social, spiritual and practical support including specialist palliative care as appropriate.
