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.

How can someone be referred?
The service accepts referrals from:
General practitioners (GPs) and other health and social care professionals
Patients and families (but we will always check with the GP or hospital consultant to check that our input is needed before accepting the referral).
For community referrals, a North Central London Palliative Care referral form should be completed or if a GP an EMIS summary can be sent.
