Specialist In-Patient Unit

When someone you care about is seriously ill, you want to know they’re getting the best possible care and treatment.  On our ward we have 19 en-suite bedrooms to provide in-patient care 24 hours a day to those who need it most.

Our in-patient ward offers end of life care and respite care, pain relief and symptom management. It is staffed by a clinical team with highly specialised skills in dealing with the physical and emotional effects of a wide range of life-limiting illnesses, from cancer to heart disease and dementia. The main concern is to relieve pain and distress caused by complex medical conditions.

With access to a full range of clinical services, we help many patients regain independence and return home. Ward staff liaise with the primary care team to ensure they continue to have appropriate care and support from their GP or District Nurse, and support may continue to be provided by our community care team.

All patient rooms either overlook our beautiful grounds, or have a tranquil view of our courtyard pond. Close family and friends can stay overnight to be close to their loved one and support and care is on hand 24 hours a day.

Our chaplain is available for spiritual care while additional support is offered by the teams in Social WorkBereavement and Psychology ServicesProfessional staff are supported by committed hospice volunteers  who help to create a warm and friendly atmosphere on the ward.

When patients die at the Hospice we hope we have done all we can to enable them and those close to them to part in a way that is as meaningful and positive as possible.
