A serious illness can be a lonely, scary place when it’s out of hours, which is why we offer Pall Call. Pall Call is an out-of-hours telephone helpline, led by nurses, which offers advice and information for patients and carers.
Through Pall Call, you’ll be able to speak to a nurse with experience in specialist palliative care, who can support and advise you on issues ranging from pain control, symptom management, syringe driver guidelines, nausea and vomiting, agitation or restlessness and other physical or practical problems.
Please be aware that we can’t send out nurses or doctors from the Hospice, though if urgent attention is needed, we advise that you contact the on-call NHS doctor or district nurse.
The number for Pall Call is 01226 244 244
