Palliative Care and Home Care Service

Our GPs are keen to help patients and their family live with cancers or long term progressive illnesses in their home.

We aim to make early diagnoses and also to support patients when their conditions become more progressive.

We attend updated training for GPs about modern palliative care issues.

We have regular communications with the palliative home care teams in the local Blackrock Hospice in Sweetman’s Avenue, as well teams in the local hospitals

Many people can be cared for in their own home or may need care in the local Blackrock Hospice.

Our GPs offer support and bereavement services after the death of your loved one. We also make referrals to local counselling bereavement support services. These can be very valuable and may help all age groups in your family.
