We provide specialist palliative care for the people of Gloucestershire with potentially life-threatening conditions.
We strive to meet the overall needs of the patient; their family and carers, with the support and expertise of our multidisciplinary specialist palliative care team.
We help patients for different reasons.
A patient may have unresolved symptoms. Or a patient has physical, psychological, social or spiritual issues that can't be managed satisfactorily in other settings. They then come to us for a specialist intervention from our multidisciplinary team.
We also care for those with complex palliative care needs which require reassessment and rehabilitation.
And we're also here to meet the complex needs of a patient requiring end of life care.
Staying at home
We work together with the primary health care team in supporting our patients so they can be cared for in their own home, which means we can offer a range of specialist palliative care services.
Our specialist palliative care services include:
- 16 bed inpatient unit
- day hospice
- hospice at home
- family support service
We want you to stay in your home for as long as possible, so we offer a flexible and responsive service on top of our existing services to make this happen.
