Following the positive reception of our previous inpatient unit room refurbishments, a further five rooms will receive an exciting update, beginning on the 15th August 2018.

The refurbishment of a further five bedrooms and the relatives rooms will provide patients, carers and families with a modernised environment with fit for purpose equipment, fixtures and fittings and soft furnishings. Refurbishment will not only enhance the patient and carer experience but also facilitate the delivery of therapeutic care and safe manual handling and infection control procedures.

During this time all other hospice services will continue so please do keep referring patients!

In addition:

  • Some Inpatient unit staff will be redeployed to the Hospice Community Teams to increase our capacity to care for patients at home

  • Hospice at Home will be available for crisis support in the community from 08.00 to 20.00 hours 7 days a week

  • The Hospital In-reach Nurses will liaise with the Hospital Specialist Palliative Care Team and wards to ascertain whether some patients could be supported at home by Hospice at Home and our Clinical Nurse Specialists

  • Palliative patients will continue to have direct access to the Hospice Clinical Advice Line

If you have any questions relating to patient care please ring the Duty Nurse on 01245 455478 between 08.00 – 20.00 hours
