Care in hospital

We are a team of specialist nurses based in Medway Maritime Hospital who are employed by the Wisdom Hospice, Rochester and are a part of Medway Community Healthcare Community Interest Company. We have specialist training and experience in controlling symptoms and offering support for patients with serious, life limiting illnesses and in providing emotional / psychological support for them and their carers within the hospital setting. Our aim is to help improve the quality of life for patients and their carers during their hospital admission and when appropriate, support with discharge from hospital.

Palliative care can be provided for any patient who has a serious condition, at any stage of their illness and patients who are undergoing investigations and do not yet have a diagnosis can sometimes benefit from our help.  We also provide support for patients at the end of their lives and may die within hours to days.

We work closely with the medical and nursing staff to support patients and their families but do not take over their care therefore remaining under their admitting Consultant.
