Community and home care

Our team works in the community with GPs and district nurses to support you and your family at home.

Your GP might refer you to us while you are at home, or support might be arranged when you are discharged from Countess Mountbatten House or another hospital.

We have community palliative care sisters who are specialist nurses and will visit you at home according to your needs and wishes. They can give you support and advice on your illness, treatment and medication. Specialist advice or help can also be arranged from our physiotherapist, doctor, occupational therapist or social worker.

Our team can put you in touch with volunteers, day care and complementary therapists.
