End of Life Care
End of life care helps all those with advanced, progressive, incurable illness to live as well as possible until they die. It enables the supportive and palliative care needs of both patient and family to be identified and met throughout the last phase of life and into bereavement.
Here at Wirral University Teaching Hospital we are committed to providing the best possible care for people at the end of their lives.
Bereavement services - The Bereavement Services team aims to ensure that the families of patients who have passed away in our hospital are cared for from the point of losing their loved one.
Chaplaincy – Chaplains from all the main Christian churches, assisted by teams of volunteers, are available to everyone - staff, patients and visitors. They are part of the Hospital staff and care about the welfare of everyone in the Hospital - whether of any religion or none. They have time to spend with anyone who needs to talk or would appreciate support. Anything said to them is treated in strict confidence.
