Wellbeing Centre

Lindsey Lodge’s outpatient facilities operate from its Wellbeing Centre, based at the hospice and provide care for adults aged 18 years and over, who are registered with a North Lincolnshire or East Riding GP and have a life-limiting or terminal condition in advanced, or progressive stages.

Lindsey Lodge Hospice and Healthcare launched its new-look Outpatient Service in April 2023.
Patients referred into the Wellbeing Centre are now offered one of two pathways (Health or Social) following a holistic assessment. This will be based on the patient goals and is designed and planned by the patient and family/carer with support from the multidisciplinary team at Lindsey Lodge Hospice.

We offer holistic support for both physical and emotional symptoms, along with goal setting, advanced care planning, memory work and access to social group work and activities. Our services are able to provide specialist support for patients who may have difficulties with their care needs, or who have frequent hospital admissions due to a specific symptom, as well as for those patients where a recent diagnosis requires radical treatment, which may have overwhelming symptoms.

The referral form is available to download here and provides a single point of access into our hospice co-ordination centre.

All outpatients will be triaged by our team of specialist healthcare professionals to understand individual patient-led goals, before being offered support that we believe will improve their overall patient experience.

Patients who follow the Wellbeing pathway, will be supported by Lindsey Lodge’s healthcare assistants and advanced assistants, who will provide an environment that will enhance their overall psychological wellbeing, through regular social interaction, and meaningful activities. It will offer an opportunity to explore reintegration in the community, help to alleviate boredom, prevent social isolation and provide much-needed carer support.

We offer a daily plan of activities including chair based exercise, crafting, gardening, memory making, visualisation and relaxation, which patients can attend, as well as time set aside each day for clinics with our medical team and advanced care practitioners.

The Health pathway will offer patients interventions led by their own individual specific goals and incorporate an in-depth holistic assessment, with standardised outcome measures. These will be delivered through outpatient appointments and reviewed within the period agreed at the point of assessment.

This patient centred approach offers patients the opportunity to set their own goals, and review their progress.

Our medical team and advanced care practitioners will provide oversight and guidance with intervention to support achievement of personal goals, with time set aside to review all patients on a weekly basis with individual case workers.

We work closely with local health partners to ensure patients who are eligible for our service, receive the best possible care and support.
