At City Hospice, our doctors are palliative medicine specialists. They offer advice on medication, pain and symptom control including treatment options and implications, giving a patient the best possible information on the options for their own individual circumstances and symptoms. This can mean the difference between being able to manage their symptoms and staying in their own homes or having to go into a hospital or hospice.
Our doctors will usually meet our patients in a first assessment first assessment.
Our doctors can discuss with patients the expectations for their health, and plan their health care with them, including discussing topics such as advance care planning.
