Palliative care

What we do

We are a multi-professional team, comprising specialist nurses and doctors.

The team provides holistic assessment, advice and support to inpatients and outpatients with illnesses that are not curable.

Our aim is to maximise quality of life by addressing the physical, psychological, spiritual and social needs of patients and their relatives or carers.

Location

We are based at both the Royal Sussex County Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital.
