Roxburghe House has been purpose built to meet the needs of patients requiring Specialist Palliative Care in NHS Grampian

Palliative care aims to achieve the best possible quality of life for patients and their families or carers by:

  • Controlling pain and other distressing symptoms

  • Helping patients and families cope with the emotional upset and practical problems of the situation

  • Helping people to deal with spiritual questions which may arise from their illness

  • Helping people to live as actively as possible despite their illness

  • Supporting families and friends in their bereavement
