Palliative Care Services - Macmillan team 18+

The Nurse Specialist (Macmillan) Team is a team of specialist nurses incorporating nurse specialists and a clinical team lead.

The team specialise in looking after patients with life limiting illnesses, including cancer, who have complex palliative care needs, especially pain and symptom management.

This can include when appropriate intervention has failed to control symptoms, when symptoms are escalating and there is incomplete symptom control, when patients or families/carers require psychological and spiritual care or if there are any other problems that other healthcare professionals are unable to manage.
