Islington ELiPSe (Palliative Care) Team

Our End of Life and Palliative care Service is provided by a specialist palliative care team. We provide our service to people needing palliative care or end of life care at home across Islington. We work alongside regular doctors, nurses and other support services. As well as seeing patients directly we act as a specialist resource, providing telephone advice, and offering education and training. We also have a website which provides information for members of the public, carers and professionals.
