Counselling and Support Service
Hospice in the Weald is remaining up to date on the current outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and continues to follow advice from Public Heath England and the NHS. In some instances, we are taking additional precautions to safeguard our patients, families, carers and our workforce.
As part of these additional precautions, the Counselling and Support Service will not be providing non-urgent face to face counselling sessions and Tea Junctions. They are maintaining telephone counselling, Ward support and staff support and introducing video sessions via a secure site.
This is to ensure that we can follow thorough infection control measures, and focus staffing and resources at our In-Patient Ward in Pembury to provide the best possible care to patients, families and carers.
We are contacting all patients and clients who would normally attend the Hospice for counselling to offer either telephone or video sessions.
Any patient or family member with concerns should contact the Counselling and Support Service office on 01892 820525 or Paul Madden, Head of Hospice Day Service & Counselling Support Service, via, firstname.lastname@example.org
The Hospice in the Weald Counselling and Support Service offer their services free of charge to patients, families, and carers.
If you are interested in counselling or would like to find out more you can contact us directly. Any healthcare professional involved in a patient's care who becomes aware of a need for psychological support for either the patient, a family member or carer might discuss making a referral to the Counselling and Support Service with the individual concerned and if they agree to this, the healthcare professional can contact us.
The Counselling and Support Service is led by a Head of Service, Paul Madden.
