Our excellent consultants are all experts in palliative and end of life care. Like our nurses, they divide their time between the hospice and visiting patients in their own homes. Many of them also work in local hospitals, so we have close links to the teams there. The doctors are specialists in all aspects of palliative medicine, including managing pain and other symptoms to give patients a better quality of life. Their expertise is well known and respected – they are trainers for many junior trainee doctors and medical students,helping to shape the future of end of life care in the UK.
