Our Clinical Nurse Specialists
Finding out you or a loved one has a life limiting illness can be overwhelming. It can be difficult to understand what is happening and to whom to turn. At City Hospice, we have a team of Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS), led by our lead nurse, Terri Gazi.
Our Clinical Nurse Specialists visit patients in their own homes, throughout Cardiff, and explain and offer tailored advice on physical symptom control and treatments, as well as offering psychological and emotional support. By answering questions, patients and families can feel much more in control in situations where they may often be feeling helpless.
Our Clinical Nurse Specialists also carry out patient reviews at our Hospice centre during our patient day centre services and train other local professionals in palliative care. They also work closely with patients’ GPs, District Nurses and hospital teams. Patients can access our Social Worker, Welfare Advice Worker, Counsellor, or other necessary support to ensure you get all the help you need, when you need it, for as long as you need it. Please speak to your nurse if you feel accessing these services would be beneficial.
