Information for healthcare professionals
The information below is general and not related to COVID-19.
We have compiled some essential information and useful links for GPs who are treating end of life and palliative care patients.
The aim of this information hub is to simplify the actions that GPs should consider undertaking, when they have seen a patient who is approaching their end of life. On occasions, these arrangements can be done at a comfortable pace, but equally, they may have to be made speedily, often when the GP is on call.
Severn Hospice has provided the documents detailed below to solely provide ease of access to essential information for registered GPs and other suitably qualified medical professionals.
Whilst a number of documents are owned and produced by Severn Hospice others are not. Those which are not produced by Severn Hospice have been kindly provided by outside partners such as the Clinical Commissioning Group.
Please note that Severn Hospice in no way claims to own, or have any control over, the documents produced by these outside partners which are accessible through this website. Severn Hospice purely provides an easy access facility for clinicians to obtain important information.
Severn Hospice does not accept any liability for the contents of documents which are reproduced on this website.
