Referral criteria and geographical area

Referral criteria

Referrals are accepted from patients, relatives, carers and healthcare professionals. It is important that the patient consents to the referral before it is completed and we may need to contact relevant healthcare professionals to obtain more clinical information. You may complete the referral form and email the completed form to: [email protected]

For any urgent referral, or if you are unable to complete a referral form, please telephone the relevant department

Inpatient Unit:                                  01282 440101

Hospice at Home:                            01282 440106

Health, Wellbeing & Rehabilitation: 01282 440110

Family Support:                               01282 440102

We do accept referrals through the post but this will add delays to us receiving it and being able to offer services.

What happens next?

When a referral has been received, it will be discussed by the multi-disciplinary team and prioritised according
to individual need. The Clinical team will then make contact with the patient to discuss next steps. If further information is required, the team will contact the referrer.
