STRUCTURE: Sussex Community NHS Trust’s palliative care team has joined with the Martlets Hospice@Home team to deliver a new specialist support and advice service.

The Palliative Care Partnership is for people in Brighton and Hove affected by advanced cancer and other life-limiting illness.

The multi-disciplinary team will provide an advice and support service for patients in their own home, seven days a week, and advise other healthcare professionals involved in their care.

Imelda Glackin, deputy chief executive and director of service development at Martlets Hospice, said: “Working with Sussex Community NHS Trust will allow us to care for even more patients and their families in Brighton and Hove, allowing them to be cared for with respect and dignity by a team of specialist and experienced staff.”
