Community Palliative Care Team

The community palliative care team consists of community clinical nurse specialists, supported by our consultants, specialty doctors and the therapy and family support teams. The service covers a wide geographical area, reaching south as far as Ringwood, north to Upavon, east to Bramshaw and west to Mere.

The team provides an outreach service to patients, relatives, carers and professional colleagues, working closely with the patient’s GP, hospital team, community nurses and other community services to ensure that optimum care is provided.

In addition, the specially trained team offers assistance with issues of a practical nature such as care needs, equipment, access to nursing support, future care planning and information about financial support.

The community team offers advice and support similar to that of the Macmillan Nurses but is not connected with, and receives no funding from, Macmillan Cancer Support.
