Following an assessment and triage, support is offered either by attendance at the Hospice through our Wellbeing Day and Nurse Led Complementary Therapy Clinics or via Telephone Care Consultations or Befriending.

We have a skilled team consisting of nurses, complementary therapists and an occupational therapist supported by social workers, benefits advisers, counsellors, befrienders and the Spiritual Care and Chaplaincy team.

How will I be triaged?

Once we receive a referral form for you from a health care professional involved in your care, a qualified nurse from the Day Hospice Services team will aim to contact you by telephone within two weeks.

This will be so that we can assess you and allocate you to the most appropriate service for your current needs.

This phone call may typically last approximately 15 to 30 minutes; we will ask questions to confirm your identity. If you wish, a relative can be with you or speak on the phone on your behalf, however, we would need consent from yourself first. Consent for this can be indicated on your referral form, you can ring, write or email us or just tell us at the time that someone will speak on your behalf.
