Specialist Palliative Care Nurses
Living with a serious illness such as cancer can affect your mental health as well as your physical health. Uncertainty over the future whilst dealing with pain or other symptoms can be difficult to deal with, particularly if you find it hard to talk about sensitive issues or have nobody to confide in.
Specialist Nursing Services strive to provide a holistic palliative care service that offer you both mental and physical health support. Specialist Nurses are based at both St Benedict’s Hospice & Centre for Specialist Palliative Care as well as Sunderland Royal Hospital offering care and support wherever the care setting.
