Palliative Care Living Well Every Day

Palliative Care
Living Well Every Day

We support people with a terminal / life-limiting illness who have complex symptoms whether they be physical, psychosocial, emotional or spiritual.

EPC is fully accredited through The Australian Council on Health Care Standards (ACHS) ensuring quality, safety and performance at all levels of service delivery.


EPC takes staff safety seriously

Our staff safety is non-negotiable. Aggression or violence towards staff in any form (racial, verbal or physical) is never ok. To maintain a safe work environment for our staff, we regularly assess how our service is delivered. We may adjust our service provision in certain circumstances to ensure the safety of our staff.


EPC takes child safety seriously

Palliative Care services provided to children are delivered to the same high standards as all other clients. EPC has additional measures in place to ensure a child safe culture is embedded within the organisation, including training on the child safety standards. All staff have a current Police Check and all clinical staff have a Working with Children Check.
