Regular telephone consultations can prove to be a lifeline for many patients and their families. Many feel isolated and alone in trying to deal with their illness.
Through St Luke’s Telephone Consultation Care service, our nurses are able to provide a listening ear to offer emotional support; we can help you to gain a greater understanding of your condition and medications. We will work with your other health care professionals to offer pain and symptom management advice, as well as talking through coping skills and practical advice. We are skilled in helping to talk through difficult conversations about future care needs and wishes. We can advise and help to direct patients or carers to appropriate services when needed.
