How the Mid Yorks team works
We are a team of healthcare professionals, based at Pinderfields Hospital, caring for patients in the hospitals and community in Wakefield and North Kirklees. The team includes:
- Specialist nurses (Macmillan Nurses)
We work closely with the doctors and nurses already looking after you. Your permission is sought before you are referred on for our advice. We either visit you face-to-face or provide specialist advice to the team responsible for your care.
We also have close links with Wakefield Hospice, The Prince of Wales Hospice in Pontefract and Kirkwood Hospice in Huddersfield.
We offer a service Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm. Out of hours there is always a consultant in palliative medicine on call to provide advice to your healthcare professionals.
The Rosewood Centre at Dewsbury and District Hospital offers day support and therapy every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and 'drop-in' support from 10am to 4pm on Mondays (excluding Bank Holidays) for North Kirklees patients.
Our consultants run hospital-based outpatient clinics.
