Symptom management

Our highly experienced care professionals follow best practice clinical guidelines to manage pain and other symptoms. 

Their focus is to improve the quality of life of the children and young people they care for and make sure parents and carers feel informed at all times. 

Symptom Management

Improving quality of life

Many of the children and young people we support have very complex symptoms which change over the course of their life. 

At every step, our aim is to provide the very best medical and nursing care to manage these symptoms, including at the end-of-life.

We also work closely with community nurses, hospital multidisciplinary teams and GPs to ensure a child or young person gets the best care at home and in a hospital too.
