Palliative and Supportive Care

Our palliative and supportive care service provides supportive, specialist care when you have a life-limiting condition, with symptoms that are difficult to manage – whether the result of ongoing treatment or an underlying condition or disease.

We will work with you, your GP and those close to you to plan the right support at the right time in the right location – ideally this will be at home and at local clinics, but if you need to come into hospital or have some time in a palliative unit, we will support you there.

Our service covers the public hospitals and surrounding areas from Caboolture in the north to the RBWH in the south, out to Moggill in the West. Our community service reaches the borders of Sunshine Coast down to the Brisbane river.

We are an integrated service, which means we work together to ensure your optimum care and support.
