We have a dedicated District Nursing team who are based at Oaks Park Primary Care Centre who look after palliative patients in their final weeks of life. Monthly meetings are held with the Palliative team, District Nurses and Macmillan Nurses to discuss various care plans and social needs for our patients. We have palliative care team coordinators Karen Millington and Ruth Nowodny. The dedicated members of staff are assigned to coordinate with all medical and social services who look after patients with terminal needs. These include the local Macmillan services and the hospice to maintain a high standard of terminal care.

The Practice enjoys an excellent relationship with the local hospice that is always on hand for additional advice and support please click on the following links for information.
