Palliative Medicine Consultants
Palliative medicine consultants are doctors with special training in palliative care and are an essential part of the Hospital Specialist Palliative Care Team and the Macmillan Unit Team. They meet regularly with the team to discuss patient care and can make arrangements to visit patients in hospital with complex needs or can visit palliative patients at home or at an outpatient appointment if necessary. The palliative medicine consultant also provides information, guidance and training for additional hospital and community staff to ensure each patient receives the highest standard of care from those involved in looking after them.
They are based in Causeway Hospital and Macmillan Unit, Antrim Area Hospital site.
