Niagara West Palliative Care Team (NWPCT)

The Niagara West Palliative Care Team (NWPCT) is a unique community team that has grown out of a partnership between West Lincoln Memorial Hospital and the Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant Community Care Access Centre (HNHB CCAC). This team has served Niagara West since 1996, seeing patients and families in every setting of care including West Lincoln Memorial Hospital, Home, McNally House Hospice, Retirement Homes and Long Term Care Facilities.  The NWPCT is composed of a Palliative Care Physician, a Palliative Nurse Clinician, a Psycho-Spiritual Clinician, a Bereavement
Support Clinician, Clinical Navigator, a CCAC Care Coordinator, Community Faith Partners, and all the community palliative care service providers.
The Team’s Trust Fund is used to assist patients and their loved ones with  care expenses such as medications, transportation and/or equipment. The Fund also assists with team education and equipment. Donations are gratefully accepted.
