Specialists in palliative care

Community Team

The majority of the people who St John’s cares for are looked after in their own home, in the community. Many people choose to spend their last weeks or days at home, and our community team are there to support them.
The Community team is made up of Clinical Nurse Specialists, who are experts in pain and symptom management and advance care planning (your wishes for the future); the Hospice at Home team who support patients and their families in the last few weeks of life and the Respite team who provide day respite and night sits for the family who are caring for their loved ones at home in those last few weeks.

The GP and district nursing team have overall responsibility for the care given, and our team work with them, as well as other professionals such as social workers, Hospital-based professionals and the wider St John’s team.

Together this team are here to ensure you are not alone.
