Palliative Care

Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the challenges associated with life-limiting illness, for both malignant and non-malignant disease.

Physical, psychosocial and spiritual needs are all considered in a comprehensive Supportive and Palliative Care Service plan
