Our services are predominantly community based, however our nine-bed inpatient unit complements this service. The day services clinic offers an introductory assessment, specialist consultation and day respite. Thanks to government funding and community support, our service is fully funded, enabling us to provide care and support free of charge. Twenty four hour care is provided by specialist palliative care nurses and medical staff. Short term admission for pain and symptom control, respite care and end of life care can be arranged if necessary. Our dedicated team includes at least one doctor on duty every day and three shifts of registered nurses and healthcare assistants. Our doctors and nurses spend time with patients, monitoring their condition and ensuring that their medication is effective and they are as comfortable as possible. Our inpatient unit also gives the patient’s family a chance to let someone else take over the responsibility of care. Our ratio of care is one nurse for every three patients.
