Plans are underway across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to offer more health and care services from people’s home and supported in local communities this winter as per peoples’ wishes.
The aim is that we all deliver the right care, in the right place and at the right time for our residents. One of those plans is a new pilot running until the end of March 2024 from St Luke’s Hospice, Plymouth.
St Luke’s Hospice Plymouth’s end of life urgent care team have ventured across the Tamar to visit people at home in East Cornwall, covering Torpoint and the Rame Peninsula, Saltash, Callington, Liskeard and the Tamar Valley towards Launceston.
The purpose of the service is to provide care to people in their own home at the end of their lives, to support them to be where they want to be and prevent unnecessary hospital admissions.
