We employ two Specialist Palliative Medicine Consultants: Paul McNamara and Andrew Hughes, an Associate Specialist in Palliative Medicine: Owen Lever, and a Speciality Doctor: Petronela Dima. Claud Regnard (a former Specialist Palliative Medicine Consultant at St Oswald’s) is now an Honorary Consultant.
Our consultants are supported by a team of Doctors, who work alongside our Nursing teams to provide day-to-day medical cover across all our services. The Medical Team are all involved in education and training of staff and students both internally and externally, including undergraduates, postgraduates, GP and specialty training.
Our Consultants are also involved in outreach sessions as part of the palliative care teams across the North East.
