Specialist Inpatient care (Specialist IPU)
Please note: some of our services are not running/not open due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are unsure, please contact the hospice or your key worker.
Our Specialist Inpatient Unit (IPU) provides short-term care for patients needing symptom control, respite, rehabilitation, or end of life care.
Take a virtual tour of our Specialist Inpatient Unit (IPU):
Our specialist team includes doctors and nurses who work alongside our social workers, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists.
We have 10 homely and comfortable rooms, all with Freeview TV, phones, internet access, en-suites, as well as their own private patios, overlooking our beautiful gardens.
One of our rooms has been specifically designed for young people and their families. The suite is a fully accessible studio apartment with a kitchenette, bathroom, modern entertainment centre, and private outdoor area, as well as a sofa bed for visiting family and friends.
All our daily meals are cooked on-site using the best fresh ingredients and we can cater for any dietary requirement or appetite.
It is important in the current and often-changing coronavirus situation that we take all reasonable steps to protect the well-being of those using our services, their loved ones and our staff.
Guidance will be reviewed periodically and may change at short notice according to national or local guidance. We thank you for your understanding and co-operation at this challenging time.
