POTTER COMMUNITY HOSPICE AT PORIRUA
Hospice was established in Porirua in early 2003. Previously the needs
of the Porirua residents were met through locally-based care co-ordinators
and a palliative care physician. Additional services were accessed through
the Wellington-based Mary Potter Hospice staff. Mary Potter Hospice is
very pleased to now be able to offer an on-site multi-disciplinary service
for the people of Porirua.
Since 2010 Mary Potter Hospice North Wellington / Porirua community team have been based at 1 Prosser Street, Porirua.

Hospice to serve the local community. The Palliative Care Co-ordinators

suitable palliative care is given.
