|What we do|
|Palliative care is a multidisciplinary approach to providing medical care and support for people with life-limiting illnesses. It focuses on improving the quality of life for both patients and their families through the prevention and relief of symptoms, and by the treatment of pain and related physical, psychosocial and spiritual problems.|
