Vision, Purpose & Values

Our Vision

To be a leading example of excellence by delivering a specialist palliative care service, in appropriate settings, to people living with advanced life limiting illnesses.

Our Purpose

We provide compassionate palliative care to patients and their families in counties Galway and Mayo. We do this by working alongside our health partners. We offer Inpatient, day care and community services, which are underpinned by exemplary knowledge and delivered with compassion,  dignity, respect and excellence.

Our Values

Our values are the foundation of our culture and our working environment. Through them, we remain focused on maintaining a patient and family-centred caring work environment.


We work with and for the community. We provide locally accessible palliative Inpatient, community and day care and bereavement services.


Our services improve the quality of life of patients who are facing life limiting illness with their families. Our compassion, empathy and kindness is evident in the person centred care we provide.


We acknowledge that each person is unique and comes to us with their own rich story. We respond with respect by addressing their individual physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs.


We strive to continuously improve by investing in our people, facilities, quality of care, governance, education and evidence informed research.

Working Together

Working together, for the benefit of our patients, in partnership with other healthcare providers we create a culture of mutual trust, confidence, teamwork, open communication and sharing responsibility. We support other healthcare providers by sharing our specialist knowledge in both day to day interactions and through formal and informal education
