Hello, my name is Katie Lister; I’m head of the communications team here at Airedale.

We’ve been working hard on our new website and are still working with some of our services to make sure the most up to date information is available to you, so please bear with us while we finish this section.

You will find some basic information below, including key information and contact details for the service you’re looking for....but in the coming weeks this will be updated to provide you a much larger information resource.

If you’re looking for general health information please go to

Thanks for your patience.

Palliative Care Service

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care teams are specially trained teams of nurses, doctors and other professionals that can help patients whose life expectancy is limited, due to conditions such as advanced cancer, heart and lung disease and some conditions of the nervous system.

Teams work with patients, their carers and their own doctors and nurses to provide expert help with pain and other troublesome symptoms and to look at ways of providing help and support in all aspects of life.

Palliative care input can be helpful even if treatment to slow progression of the illness are still being given (such as chemotherapy).
