Palliative Medicine

Our team will work with you, to help treat pain and difficult symptoms, supporting you and your family, when you need it most.

What is Palliative Medicine?

Palliative medicine helps patients and families living with cancer to live as fully and as actively as possible, by providing the highest standards of pain and symptom control, psychological and practical support.

Patients can benefit from palliative medicine at any time - from diagnosis, throughout treatment and afterwards.

How can we help you?

The consultants in palliative medicine at the ROC is provided by Private Palliative Medicine Services LLP and offers treatment to help:

  • Provide relief from pain and other symptoms
  • Alleviate any side-effects of your treatment
  • Enhance the quality of life experienced by our patients and their families

Their expertise is available to you at any stage of your illness or treatment.

All of the consultants in palliative medicine are specialist physicians who treat pain and other difficult symptoms sometimes experienced by patients with cancer.

The consultant team will work with you to create the most effective treatment plan to help relieve any pain or symptoms. Should you wish, they will also talk through any concerns that you might have relating to your illness and its impact on you or those close to you.

They can arrange for you to be seen at your convenience - either during your admission for treatment or as an outpatient. At all times, they will work alongside the consultant in charge of your care and also co-ordinate with your GP.

How can I arrange to see a consultant in palliative medicine?

You will need to be referred to see them by the consultant in charge of your care.
