Working in partnership for our patients

St Luke’s plays a central part in the network of palliative care nursing and support services in Sheffield, collaborating with many other organisations and agencies in the city.

Our own teams

Our teams regularly work in partnership with GPs, district nurses, hospital consultants, specialist hospital nurses and other health professionals.

At our hospice, the In Patient Centre and Patient and Family Support staff work closely with medical practitioners, and St Luke’s plays a unique and crucial role in providing expert specialist care for people who have particularly complex and challenging conditions and problems.

At the heart of several partnerships is our Integrated Community Team, who support around 1,800 patients in their own homes throughout Sheffield each year.

This team, entirely funded by St Luke’s is an integral part of our wider team of consultants, specialist registrars, doctors, nurses, therapists and social workers.

Each patient has their own designated Community Nurse, to support them throughout their illness so that they have the best possible quality of life, relief from symptoms, and flexible choices about where they are looked after.

The nurses are also a valuable source of emotional and psychological support for patients and their families.

They don't provide intensive home nursing or help with daily physical care. But if a patient needs this level of care they can arrange it via partner organisations.

We also take part in palliative care education and research. Here’s more information about our Palliative care education partnerships.
