Palliative care aims to provide the best quality of life possible for a terminally ill patient and their family, including keeping the patient free from pain as far as is possible. It responds to physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs and extends to support in bereavement.

Pharmacy plays a key role in the delivery of pain relieving medicines and other drugs used in the palliative care setting. ¬†At Fortune’s Pharmacy we have a comprehensive range of the drugs typically used and we work closely with the GP and Palliative Care Nurse to ensure that essential medicines for you, or a loved one, are available when required.
