I usually think of transition from primary to secondary school but I'm finding the transition to palliative care hard as it's tough to leave the oncology team and get to know a new crowd. I'm wondering if there's a way it could be made easier. I'd visited the hospice before (helped with their LGBTI policy). I would certainly recommend a previsit. But knowing who to phone is a problem. We started one night at 10pm as I was bleeding and got to the ward after a painful, noisy 10 hour night in A&E night at 12 noon. Noise was the staff talking as we were next to their long office which they shouted to one another down.
