Recent media attention has been directed to what is perceived to be a severe shortage in family doctors. A report by Simon Kotecha for the Today programme , 9th January 2020, highlighted concerns in a report by the Royal College of GPs (RCGP) about ‘unacceptable’ patient waits for appointments and referrals.

Any person needing Hospice care, or responsible for someone needing Hospice care, can contact us directly and avoid any delay caused by such a wait.

It is possible and often easier for contact to be made directly, simply by picking up the phone or completing our Access Our Care form. Any urgent enquiry or referral can be made on 01892 820515, and this number is manned by nursing staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
