When people are diagnosed with a terminal illness they deserve the best possible care and support. But, right now, that’s not possible because there's a shortage of specialist palliative care in NSW.
This means the people we live and work with; people who join our organisations, who volunteer with us, and support our businesses, can’t make the best of the time they have left, to live life as well as possible.
That’s just not good enough.
And that's why the organisations and businesses above are calling on the NSW Government to fund more palliative care doctors and nurses across NSW and to meet the palliative care needs of Aboriginal communities as well.
Palliative care provides essential medical, practical, emotional and spiritual support to people with a terminal illness when they need it most.
Will your organisation or business join us and urge the NSW Government to end the palliative care shortage?
We stand with Cancer Council NSW in asking the NSW Health Minister, Brad Hazzard, to fund 10 additional specialist palliative doctors, at a minimum; 129 extra palliative care nurses; and culturally appropriate palliative care for Aboriginal people.
