Supportive End of Life Care

The care we provide is important at any time of life, but at Walderslade Surgery we feel that the care people receive when reaching the end of their lives can make all the difference to them and to their families and carers.

It isn't always possible to help people with illnesses such as cancer, heart failure, COPD or multiple sclerosis to get better, but we can make them much more comfortable by relieving symptoms and providing practical help and support for them as they approach the end of their lives.

We work as a team of GPs with district nurses, community matrons and Macmillan nurses, helping people to make the best choices about the care they want, whether it be at home or in a Hospice. We have access to nursing support at home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The death of a loved one can be an emotional time and we continue to provide bereavement support to families afterwards.
