Care Throughout the Highlands


The Hospice Inverness

Highland Hospice is one of 13 hospices in Scotland, and serves the whole Highland area.

The specialist palliative care service gives a high level of professional skills from a trained inter-disciplinary team. The team includes - a consultant, nurses, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, aromatherapist, family support worker and chaplain.

The aim is to not only provide care for patients, relatives and friends, but also to act as a resource centre for other palliative health care professionals.

Based in Inverness, the Hospice has an in-patient unit, a day hospice, and training centre.

Two Highland Hospice nurses work in Caithness and Sutherland as part of the locally-based palliative care team. They help to provide an enhanced local resource for doctors, nurses and other professionals caring for patients with advanced incurable illness.
