Palliative Care specialist, Dr Holly Atkinson, is now making regular onsite visits to CGHS.
Latrobe Regional Hospital is providing the Gippsland Regional Consultancy which was previously operated through the Gippsland Regional Palliative Care Consortium and provided by Dr Scott King from Calvary Bethlehem Healthcare.
The level of service has not changed – only the provider and the link to LRH.
The level of service is:
- Available for consultation via phone for doctors and other health professionals or to have a client review in person for palliative symptom management and clinical decision making.
- Service availability is from Mondays to Fridays between 0800-1700 hours.
- Contact via phone 51738111, after hours 51738000
- A continued professional development component is also part of this service – as in the past, case discussions etc.
