Welcome to PALPRAC

Palliative care is specialised medical care for people with serious illnesses. This type of care focuses on relieving the symptoms and stress of a serious illness.

Palliative care aims to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family.

Palliative Care is provided by a specially-trained team of doctors, nurses and other specialists who work together with a patient’s other doctors to provide an extra layer of support.
