Palliative care

Available locations:

Palliative care is a type of care that helps children and their families who are dealing with a life-threatening or life-shortening illness. The goal of Specialist Paediatric Palliative Care (SPPC) is to improve the quality of life for these children and their families.

Every child and family is different, and the team provides a variety of types of support depending on your child’s needs.
