Phillip was referred to the hospice to help with his symptoms, in particular his pain. Phillip accessed therapies, family support and nursing services who all worked together to help with the problems that he shared with us as he got to know the team better.

Phillip has now been discharged from the hospice, this is what he said about how the Family Support Team helped him.

“The practical, financial and emotional support has made a tremendous difference to me, at one of the most difficult times of my life. If a problem arose, the exceptional staff would step in and provide help, advice and support. It would seem like the team had taken the problem from me, but they had just supported me to get through it. I cannot thank or praise the team enough, for the difference they have made to my partner and myself, during a very difficult time for both of us
