The NSW Palliative Care After Hours Helpline

Healthdirect Australia operates an after-hours palliative care telephone service on behalf of the NSW government.
The helpline number is 1800 548 225. It operates on weekdays from 5pm – 9am, weekends from 5pm Friday to 9am Monday and public holidays.

This free Helpline supports people who are receiving palliative care at home or in a residential facility, their carers and families. It also assists health professionals, such as GPs, to support palliative care patients who choose to remain at home.
