Community PCNS team

Referral Form

Palliative Care Nurse Specialists provide evidence based specialist palliative care in the community as part of the multi-disciplinary team including District Nurses, GPs and Occupational therapy amongst others. This includes holistic assessments, symptom management, advanced care planning, review and co-ordination of allied health services, all with a view to providing individualised care using the most appropriate services available.

We act as a source of support and guidance for the whole family throughout the patient’s journey through to bereavement. Utilising a complex strategy of specialist clinical knowledge, highly developed communication skills and specialist level direct and indirect patient care, we manage a defined caseload with the aim of supporting and empowering the patient to remain independent, comfortable and symptom free.
