24/7 Phone Support

The hospice has a 24/7 advice line available to healthcare professionals, patients and carers. Calls will be answered by Palliative Care Nurse Specialists who have access to hospice medical records when the patient is known to Dougie Mac Hospice. The advice line is also able to provide general advice on patients not known to the hospice in order to best advise any patients with life-limiting illnesses.

The nurse has access to a Consultant in Palliative Medicine 24 hours a day for further advice if necessary.
