The End of Life intensive home nursing service provides support for patients and their families in the last days and hours of life. The Intensive Home Nursing (IHNS) Team works to ensure that people approaching the end of their lives are cared for in the most comfortable and dignified way possible.

IHNS nurses help to provide a support plan, night care and 24 hour nursing as an extra layer of support to other palliative care services. They can also provide support for people experiencing an episode of acute illness and work with other services to avoid unnecessary admission to hospital.

The CQC found that “relatives consistently praised the service and the staff who provided it.”

A support worker with IHNS, Nicola White, said: “Even in the most difficult circumstances, we want to support patients and families and often we can really make a difference during this difficult time.”
