Our Clinical Nurse Specialists have specialist Palliative care skills and knowledge to provide you with information, support and advice. Your GP, consultant or nurse specialist can refer you to our nurses, who will give support and guidance to your caring team to maximise your quality of life. Our nurses can also advise on anything from complex symptom management to spiritual and psychological care.
Helping you cope
Our nurses are here to:
- Help to manage your symptoms, such as pain, nausea or breathlessness.
- Advise you, your family and carers so you can understand what is going on, making it easier to make decisions about the future.
- Contact your GP, district nurses and social services to make sure you are receiving the best possible care.
- Give you access to some of Trinity’s other services, such as the Day Therapy Unit, In Patient Unit, Complementary Therapy and the Linden Centre.
We have 12 CNS nurses in total, with four of them providing care at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. Our eight other nurses can be found working in the homes of patients, carers or families. Wherever they are, our nurses always act as a advocate for you to achieve the highest quality of care on your journey at the time when you need us most.
