Welcome to SMRPCC website

The Southern Metropolitan Region Palliative Care Consortium is an alliance of palliative care service providers that aims to support improvements in the integration and coordination of palliative care services. The Consortium includes services that work in the community (caring for people in their homes), in acute settings (caring for people in hospital) and in inpatient settings (hospices and palliative care units).

Palliative care is care provided to people of all ages who have a life limiting illness, with little or no prospect of cure, and for whom the primary treatment goal is quality of life.
