Vision, Mission, & Logo

Vision

The vision of the Pretoria West Palliative Care Forum is to create awareness and promote palliative care visibly, in order to alleviate suffering and to provide quality palliative care for all residents living with a life threatening illness within the Pretoria West area.


Mission

The goal of the Pretoria West Palliative Care Forum is to combine the expertise and efforts of all member organisations to provide a professional programme of comprehensive palliative care – responding to physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs – dedicated exclusively to patients and their families facing progressive and life threatening illness within the Pretoria West area.
