AGNAP continues to provide financial and other support to this, the only service of its kind in Guyana, which serves all three counties and is operated by a team of three nurses (Cecelia Bennie, Marina Ramsden and Deoranie Persaud) and their manager Wendy Grenada. These dedicated palliative care specialists were trained in the UK at St Christopher's Hospice and recently received refresher courses with the help of volunteer palliative care nurse practitioner Ann Read, who with financial assistance from AGNAP has twice visited Guyana for this purpose. Strong links with the Periwinkle Club are being developed.
The Home Hospice Team has recently relocated to The Doobay Medical Centre Inc, 8-9 Courbane Park, Annandale, East Coast Demerara. Telephone 220 9759 and 220 9762.
