Palliative Care Service

Health Professionals

The main focus of the Palliative Care Team is to support patients and their carers to live as independently and as well as they can in the face of serious illness. The members of the team are drawn from a variety of health disciplines including nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychologists, volunteers and doctors. They also work closely with medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, psychiatrists, pharmacists and chaplains.

There are palliative care teams onsite at Concord Hospital and a team that sees people in the community.
