- What is it: Pilgrims Wellbeing and Social Programme
- Of interest to: Clinical Staff
Pilgrims Hospices in East Kent offer The Wellbeing and Social Programme for patients who have a life limiting illness, not just cancer. They run therapeutic programmes for breathless management, fatigue management, exercise, falls, social programmes, advanced care planning support and programmes for carers. To meet the requirements of the Hospice the patient is expected to die within a year, have unmet needs beyond the scope of Primary Care and agree to a referral to the Hospice. Specialist advice for healthcare professionals is available if you wish to discuss the suitability of a referral or need specialist palliative advice.
