How to make a referral

The Triage Nurse provides a central point of access for all referrals. It is preferable that referrals are made on the hospice referral form. This can be downloaded, or accessed directly via SystmOne. Referral forms/letters can be sent via SystmOne or posted. Referral letters will be accepted as long as all the necessary information is provided. Alternatively contact the Triage nurse on 01245 455478 to discuss your referral.

Urgent requests for Inpatient Unit (IPU) admission outside normal working hours are considered according to individual needs and availability of beds. Out of hours admissions will only be arranged following full discussion between the on-call CNS, Hospice Consultant and Nurse in charge of the IPU.
