Who we are
We believe quality palliative care occurs when strong networks exist between specialist palliative care providers, primary generalists, primary specialists and support care providers and the community.
Palliative Care NT (PCNT) is a not-for-profit organisation that strives to:
raise awareness of palliative care
promote conversations around death and Advance Care Planning
improve access to palliative care services around the Northern Territory
improve the quality of care and support available to all Territorians at the end of their lives.
PCNT is a core interest group run largely by member volunteers with two branches: the Top End branch based in Darwin and the Central branch based in Alice Springs.
We do not deliver clinical services and are not affiliated with the NT Government or Territory Palliative Care, which provide specialist palliative care services in the NT.
For more information about services, or enquiries about carer volunteering opportunities, please contact Territory Palliative Care directly.
