Our medical team is made up of Consultants in Palliative Medicine, a Specialty doctor, an Advanced Nurse practitioner in Palliative Care, a GP with special interest in Palliative Care and doctors in training on rotation – one training to be a GP and one training to be a Consultant in Palliative Medicine.  

The team works across a wide range of services supporting clinical activity and educational activities in the local community, both on-site at University Ayr and University Crosshouse Hospitals as well as at the hospice's in-patient unit and day services centre. All the senior doctors are very experienced and recognised as experts in their field, and are employed by the hospice.   

The medical team is also involved in teaching other health professionals and undergraduates in medicine and nursing. They also work closely with colleagues in NHS Ayrshire and Arran to improve the quality of care for all palliative care patients in Ayrshire.

The team can also be contacted at the hospice for advice by health care professionals 24/7.
