Inpatient Unit

Our inpatient unit is bright and airy and has ten bedrooms. There is no set routine at the hospice and we encourage patients to decide what they want to do and when. They can relax in the gardens or the bright conservatory area or can rest in the privacy of their own room.

Each of the ten bedrooms on the inpatient unit is spacious and light and has a television and en-suite facilities. The height and position of the beds can be adjusted to keep patients as independent and comfortable as possible.

Free Wifi is also available to patients and visitors in the inpatient unit and throughout the hospice, making it easier to stay connected during a stay.

Inpatients are referred to us through their GP or healthcare professional for symptom control and management, complex needs and end of life care.

For more information please call the inpatient unit on 01254 287002.

Visiting times
Our care extends to family and friends and they are welcome to visit at any time, there are no fixed visiing times. However, there may be times that patients request limited visits from friends and family. We would ask all visitors to respect other patients’ needs.

For visiting Monday to Friday, 8.00am until 5.00pm, visitors enter via the main door and sign in and out when they leave. After 5.00pm, at weekends and on bank holidays entry is by the night entrance which is located along the building to the left of the main entrance. Access is down steps or a ramp and via a call system on the side of the wall. Please ensure you have your face to the call system and you clearly identify who you are visiting.

We have a downloadable booklet that is given to patients and contains all the information they need to know about the inpatient unit.
