The UCHT now provides additional nursing & clinical care for patients at the end of life as follows:
• Additional nursing care is now available free of charge for patients in the Trust’s Stina Mooyman Palliative Care Suite as necessary during the patients’ last days. This additional nursing support is provided as and when recommended by the Manager of the Aspiring Enliven facility.
• In collaboration with the GPs at both the Aspiring and Wanaka medical practices, the UCHT will fund GP care for patients during their final weeks of life, if they have exhausted their government provided GP terminal care funding. The Trust’s additional funding support is available both to patients in the Trust’s Stina Mooyman Suite, and to patients choosing to remain in their own homes in the Upper Clutha. The funding is provided on the recommendation of the patient’s Wanaka GP.
