The Palliative Care Team offers specialist advice and support both on symptom control and the total care of patients with any life-limiting illness. The philosophy for delivering specialist palliative care at Addenbrooke's Hospital is that care is patient centred, whilst encompassing as far as possible the needs of family/ carers and other healthcare professionals. Our goal is to enable the provision of excellent palliative care within the Trust.

Specialist Palliative Care Team

The Specialist Palliative Care Team is an advisory service, which works in conjunction with the referring team but does not take over the patient's care completely. We see patients from any directorate in the Trust and offer both in-patient and out-patient care.

We work in conjunction with the patient's medical team and can be involved at any stage in the patient's illness from the time of diagnosis onwards. Our involvement is targeted at patient and family centred care, concentrating on working with the patient to achieve the very best quality of life and to support them and their family.

Specialist Palliative Care provides support in:

  • Symptom control
  • Psychological support for patients and families/carers
  • End of life care
  • Future care planning
  • Advice and support for healthcare professionals caring for patients with a life-limiting illness
