If an illness cannot be cured, there is still much that can be done to help with symptom control. We work closely with our district nursing team and palliative care services.

Most people would want to spend their last days at home rather in hospital. If someone is approaching the end of their life, we would want to know their wishes and abide by them as far as possible. Where there are advance directives, we would take them into account as well.
