Psychological service for specialist palliative care

Overview

The Psychological Service helps patients who are living with a life-limiting illness and during end-of-life care, as well as their families. We also support people during bereavement. We help support children, young people, adults, couples, and whole families.

The team is available at any time from diagnosis, throughout illness and end-of-life care, and during bereavement.

Counselling and other forms of psychological support are provided by an experienced team with special skills in helping people cope with the emotions and changes faced during illness, end-of-life care and bereavement. Some work as volunteers and some are employed. All follow a strict code of conduct and the service provided is confidential. People can be seen individually, in couples or family groups, whatever is best for you. If all you need is information and advice, we can provide that too!

We work at the Priscilla Bacon Centre, in Norwich, and at West Pottergate Health Centre, which is a short distance away. In some circumstances, we can see people in the own homes. We work on weekdays between 9am to 5pm and some evenings.

We also provide

  • Support, supervision and education for the staff in specialist palliative care
  • Events and materials to promote public and professional awareness across Norfolk of the psychological needs of patients and their families during illness, end-of-life care and bereavement
  • Research, audit, evaluation and service development
  • Advice, consultancy and education to other organisations working with people of any age, including children, young people, couples and families, who are affected by life-limiting and life-threatening illness, end-of-life care and bereavement

How to get in touch
You may contact us yourself, but we will also need to have a referral from a healthcare professional, such as a member of staff at the Priscilla Bacon Centre, your hospital consultant, a community nurse, or your GP.
