Palliative Care

At Horizon we aim to promote and deliver our services in the way NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) has defined Palliative Care.

Palliative care is the active holistic care of patients with advanced progressive illness. Management of pain and other symptoms and provision of psychological, social and spiritual support is paramount. The goal of palliative care is achievement of the best quality of life for patients and their families. Many aspects of palliative care are also applicable earlier in the course of the illness in conjunction with other treatments.

Palliative Care is an area of healthcare that focuses on relieving and preventing suffering for patients. It can be appropriate for patients in all disease stages, including those undergoing treatment for curable illnesses; those living with chronic diseases; as well as patients who may be nearing the end of their life.

Our palliative care packages utilise multi-disciplinary and person-centred approaches to patient care. We work with input from families; GPs; Consultants; Pharmacists; Community Palliative Nurse specialists; Nurses; Community Healthcare Specialist teams; faith representatives; social workers; and a range of in-house therapy staff in formulating a plan of care to relieve suffering in all areas of a patient's life.

This multi-disciplinary approach allows our team to address physical, emotional, spiritual, and social concerns that arise with advanced illness and End of Life care planning. The aim of our service is to deliver care with a holistic approach to every individual that helps them and their family to cope with their condition and treatment.
