Palliative Care

Palliative care aims to provide assistance for people with cancer whose illness can no longer be cured.  However treatment can still be offered in order to make the patient as comfortable as possible.

The Palliative Care Service offers a comprehensive service from a multidisciplinary team throughout the Shoalhaven.  It is comprised of inpatient units at David Berry Hospital and community and hospital liaison services.  Consultations are available in Shoalhaven District Memorial and Milton Ulladulla hospitals, Shoalhaven nursing homes and in the community.  Outpatient clinics are located at the Shoalhaven Cancer Care Centre in Nowra and at David Berry Hospital.

Nursing and allied health services are provided in conjunction with Community Health throughout the region and comprise specialist services.
