Supporting you at home

We are a specialist team of healthcare professionals working in the community – nurses, doctors, social workers, physiotherapists and occupational therapists – who are employed by North London Hospice. Our work complements that of GPs, district nurses, social services and hospital teams. We offer expert support and advice to a patient’s family and carers.

Community nurse specialists

Our specialist team of community nurses are experts in palliative care. They visit patients in their own homes (including nursing homes) and are responsible for carrying out initial assessments of all community patients referred to North London Hospice.

Palliative care support service

Our Palliative Care Support Service (PCSS) can provide short-term hands-on care at home by specially trained nurses and health care assistants. We want to meet the needs of all patients but sometimes need to prioritise.
