Care

What provision is there for palliative care in St Helens?

St Helens Hospital and Whiston Hospital have Specialist Palliative Care Teams who are experienced and trained in providing palliative care, and can also offer an advisory and supportive service for patients, families and staff. They can make referrals and/or contact with your GP, District Nurse and Macmillan Nurses to link up with local hospice in-patient and out-patient services.

Hospices, such as Willowbrook Hospice, provide care specifically for terminally ill people and give support to their Carers both in the hospice and at home.

The HoneyRose Foundation is a local charity that raises money to provide a memorable day for people that are suffering from a life threatening or terminal illness. For example this may be a special day or weekend away that would help to alleviate suffering, improve their quality of life and also provide the family/Carer with a lasting memory of their loved one.

The National Council for Palliative Care can also provide more information on palliative care and how to access services.
