Visiting the In-Patient Ward
Visitors are welcome to pop to the Hospice to see a loved one any time day or night. If our reception is closed then you will need to head to the night entrance (to the right of reception) and ring the bell. Our carpark has ample space and is free of charge.
What can I bring to the In-Patient Ward?
Our coffee shop is open from 8:30am to 8:30pm selling tea, coffee, sandwiches and light refreshments. We also have a coffee bar in the In-Patient Ward corridor where you can access similar items 24 hours per day.
A range of breakfast items are available in the Sitting Room from which visitors can help themselves. There is an ‘Honesty box’ in place with suggested prices for individual items.
The lunch menu is available on the Welcome Desk and in the Sitting Room and visitors are invited to choose from this between 12noon to 2.00pm. Visitors can choose either to eat on the Ward or may prefer to come to The Eatery (our Restaurant, located on the Lower Ground Floor) which they can do between 1.00pm to 2.00pm.
We have a list of local services available. If you would like to know where you can obtain hot food, accommodation or transport please speak to a member of the team.
In difficult circumstances such as the last days of life, we have overnight rooms for close family to stay and temporary beds can be set up in the patient room if necessary. If you feel the need to stay overnight at the Hospice, please speak to one of our nursing team.
