In a nutshell: A new service in west Norfolk will mean patients who are coming to the end of their lives will have greater choice on receiving professional care and support within their own homes. The Hospice at Home Service aims to improve the care on offer to patents with palliative care needs such as cancer, motor neurone disease or other long term conditions. It has been commissioned by West Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group as part of its Palliative Care Strategy and will be provided by Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust (NCH&C) in partnership with Norfolk Hospice – Tapping House and Marie Curie Cancer Care. It is expected that the service will be in place from September.
