HospiceCare Nurse Service

HospiceCare clinical services are led by Registered Nurses with extensive backgrounds and knowledge in community nursing and palliative care.  Their role is to work closely within the Primary Care Network for North Northumberland, ‘Well Up North’ incorporating the twelve GP practices which cover a geographical area ranging from Berwick-Upon-Tweed to Morpeth. 

The aim is to work alongside the GP’s, Community nurses, Macmillan nurses and allied health professionals across North Northumberland to provide practical support with disease and symptom management by administering medication, offering advice and support to those suffering life-limiting illness and their carer’s and loved ones who care for them at home.  Our nurses can assist and support with Advance Care planning if that person wishes to do so. 

Our nurses are available Mon-Fri till 6pm and can be accessed via health care professional.
