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 and are available seven days a week for home visits. They manage physical symptoms like pain, nausea or fatigue. They also work closely with GPs and other health and social care teams to ensure care and support is co-ordinated. The nurses will share expert advice, support loved ones, and if need be, provide a referral to our day or inpatient services.

Our other healthcare specialists will also work out in the community, treating people at home with the same level of care as they would receive at one of our hospices. We also have outpatient clinics where patients attend a nearby location for a booked appointment.
