Palliative care phone service opens statewide

WESTERN District Health Service has welcomed a State Government commitment to support those living with life-limiting illness and those who support them by funding Victoria’s first specialist palliative and end of life care phone service.

The Palliative Care Advice Service (PCAS) is free and confidential service for anyone seeking information, guidance or support to help them live with, and make decisions about, life-limiting illness.

Parkville Integrated Palliative Care Service director, associate professor Brian Le said this type of support was often broader than most people appreciated.
