NTEC Palliative Care Services

The Bradbury Hospice Hospital Support Team

The Bradbury Hospice Hospital Support Team

The NTEC Palliative Care Services aim to maximize the quality of life of patients in the terminal stage of their illness. We focus on their physical, social, psychological and spiritual needs. We believe in providing a seamless holistic care for both cancer and non-cancer patients by extending the palliative care concept beyond the hospice walls into the acute care setting.

Scope of Service

  1. Consultative service

    Upon individual patient referral, our team, primarily the palliative care nurse, visits the patients admitted to hospital within the NTEC and gives advice on symptom management and psychosocial care.

  2. Referral service
    During the hospital visit, we also assess whether the patient requires referral to palliative in-patient care or continual support within the existing acute hospital, home care and day hospice upon patient's discharge.
  3. Educational service

    We provide skill transfer for healthcare professionals via formal and informal palliative care education on the wards.
  4. Supportive service
    We provide continual follow up for patients who are unsuitable for transfer to the hospice setting by paying regular hospital visits and collaborating with the hospital staff to ensure quality shared care for the terminally ill.
