How you can be referred

You can be referred through your GP, palliative care specialist nurse (including Macmillan and District Nurses) and a doctor or consultant at a hospital. The services most relevant to you will be agreed with you during a meeting with a nurse who will be your key worker. They’ll regularly review your progress and ensure you’re receiving the care which is best for you.
