Fundraise & Get Involved

Our Services are free of charge to all patients and their loved ones. We need to raise over £7 million every year to provide outstanding Hospice care to the local community.

Staying on the In-Patient Ward

To make your time at the In-Patient Ward as comfortable as possible we ask that you bring with you: 
  • All your current medicines in their original packets or containers 
  • Toiletries, razors, toothbrush, anything you use on a daily basis 
  • Nightwear, dressing gown 
  • Comfortable daywear 
  • Footwear with non slip soles 
  • Any reading or listening material 

Please keep valuable items to a minimum where possible. Our nursing staff will be happy to explain our safe storage options. 

 

Arrival 

Generally you will arrive in the morning and be greeted by a member of our Nursing Team, usually the Nurse who will help you to settle into your room and ensure you are comfortable before continuing to look after you for the rest of the day. You will then be assessed by one of our Nurses and a Doctor.  You will be seen be a Doctor each day (including weekends). Each day you will have a named nurse who will look after you. 

 

Discharge 

We will discuss any plans regarding discharge with yourself and your loved ones. You can be discharged to your home, a care home or our Cottage Hospice.
