Inpatient Unit

We provide 24-hour specialist palliative care to patients on our Inpatient Unit 365 days a year.

Our team always go that extra mile to ensure patients are as comfortable as possible.

Patients are admitted to the Inpatient Unit for symptom control including palliative rehabilitation, respite or end of life care, and can be referred to us by a health professional or family member. The health professional may be a hospital doctor or nurse, or a member of a community team such as a district nurse, GP or Macmillan Nurse.

Many of our patient’s symptoms improve and they are discharged from the unit, whilst others stay with us until the end of their life. Our unit is not a long stay facility and if ongoing care is required, we will work with community health and social care providers to plan appropriate packages of care. We also work closely with residential and nursing homes to plan and co-ordinate a transfer of care.
