Community Outreach Support


Many people who are seriously ill and nearing the end of their lives prefer to be cared for at home surrounded by their family and friends. Our Outreach team help make this possible.

The Outreach Team


The Outreach Team supports patients and families in their own homes through the provision of education, personal, practical and emotional support for short periods of time.

Our Outreach team work collaboratively with health and social care professionals, to ensure that those patients who wish to be cared for at home, surrounded by their family and friends, are able to do so.

The team consists of a Nurse Team Coordinator and four Outreach Support Workers who are highly skilled, motivated and committed in delivering all aspects of specialist palliative and end-of-life care to people whose preferred place of care is in their home. The team have extensive knowledge and skills in palliative care.

The team provides care Monday to Friday between 9 am and 5 pm (excluding Bank Holidays).
