Palliative Care

At St Vincent's Private Hospital Brisbane, we focus on optimising quality of life for people with life-limiting illness - with compassion, integrity and dignity

We have an experienced and highly qualified team of palliative medicine physicians, clinical nurses, allied health professionals, counsellors and spiritual care practitioners. They are leaders in their fields who will support you and those closest to you. They will work together with other specialists, your general practitioner and existing community services to manage your care.

Our Services

Our palliative care services include early intervention, palliative care at home, palliative care in hospital and support services.

Early intervention

We offer palliative care in the early stages of your journey so you can receive our highly-specialised, emotional, spiritual and physical support. Support from our specialist team as soon as possible after diagnosis can help you, and other health professionals involved in your care, receive our services and advice for as long as possible. We can help to better manage your symptoms in conjunction with other medical treatments that may be part of your ongoing care.

Palliative care at home

We offer palliative care at home to people who prefer the comfort of familiar surroundings. This service includes access to 24 hour, seven day consultancy support and advice. After initial assessment and development of your care plan, follow-up consultations will monitor your progress and help you remain at home within the comfort of familiar surroundings. If there is a change in your condition, your care plan will be modified to meet your needs.
