Palliative care

Support for children with life limiting and life threatening conditions

Our palliative care service supports babies, children and young people with life limiting and life threatening conditions. We provide specialist symptom management, discuss advanced care planning and support end of life care.

We offer care and support to children and their families from across south east London and south east England. We provide this service to children as inpatients at Evelina London Children’s Hospital and to children in hospices and in their own homes.

We work closely with local teams in the community and with colleagues in adult services.
