Community services

We don't just care for people at our hospices; we also provide a variety of services from our expert teams out in the community, which enable patients to remain in the comfort of their own homes.

Our Community Nurse Specialists are a key part of this service and are available seven days a week for home visits. They can help by managing physical symptoms like pain, nausea and fatigue, and also work closely with GPs and other health and social care teams to ensure care and support is co-ordinated. Our nurses are happy to share expert advice, support loved ones, and if need be, provide a referral to our day or inpatient services.

Our other health care specialists also work in the community, treating people at home with the same level of incredible care as they would receive at one of our hospices. Attendance at outpatient clinics is also possible, giving patients the opportunity to attend booked appointments at a local clinic. For more information on outpatient services please contact your local hospice team.
