Covid-19 & Specialist Palliative Care

The world wide outbreak of COVID-19 is like nothing we've dealt with before, and it will require all of us to work together to ensure that appropriate guidance and good practice are shared amongst our fellow palliative care workers. We must continue to support our patients with the best end of live care we can offer, and ongoing support to those with significant illness as a result of both life-limiting illness and / or COVID-19.
