Palliative care advice line - adult services


Working in conjunction with Marie Curie Cancer Care, we run Hospadvice, an out of hours telephone advice service available for health and social care professionals caring for patients from Northumberland, North of Tyne and Gateshead with palliative care needs.

Out of hours advice is available from 5:00pm to 8:30am weekdays, all weekends and bank holidays.

Calls are answered by a Doctor or qualified Nurse on our inpatient unit, therefore you may need to leave a message on the answerphone, which is checked regularly. Please leave a number so that we can call you back.

Hospadvice offers access to advice on medical, clinical and signposting options.

Please ring: 0191 273 3435
