How to add documents to SLHD Hospital files

This innovative service allows a healthcare professional to develop a palliative care treatment plan that will support a patient’s care to be given in the most appropriate setting. This plan is developed in consultation with the patient, carers and/or family.  A GP or specialist can submit the final treatment plan to NSW Ambulance for authorisation. Once authorised by NSW Ambulance, the paramedic responding to a triple zero (000) call can provide treatment in alignment with the plan. For example, additional pain medication or respiratory therapy may be ordered to manage end of life symptoms. The option for hospital transfer remains available if that is the patient’s and family’s choice.
