Palliative Care Services

These services aim to care and support children, young adults and their families (from the Wolverhampton area with a Wolverhampton GP) who have a life limiting illness and wish to be cared for at home.

Most people accessing these services will already be known to the Paediatric or Adult Community nursing team.

We recognise that talking about life limiting illness and planning future care needs is never easy, particularly when it concerns the care of children and young adults.

Some of these services cater specifically for children and young adults who are coming to the final stage of their illness and are in the last few weeks of their lives.

We want to offer you nursing care and support that allows children and young people to remain at home with their families. Being cared for at home allows young people to participate in family life and remain close to parents and siblings.
